Gießen is a German university town, not far from Frankfurt am Main.


I conducted the project there at Cafe Amelie. The cafe serves delicious coffee and cakes, but it is also a hub for activism and solidarity. The cooperative was launched in 2007 and their doors are open to anyone who wishes to engage in social and political topics.


I felt this was an appropriate place to engage with young, energetic, intelligent people.


Although I did not record as many people as other cities I visited, we spent lots of time in discussion - about love and what it means within solidarity movements.
