GULLIVER Überlebensstation für Obdachlose 14.05. – 28.07.2023

Alaaf auf Abstand



Carnival during the Covid pandemic was practically impossible. So, the young people from the Jugendwerkstatt Chorweiler of JFW Köln e.V. came up with the idea of posting 1,200 bunches of flowers and a brief note in their neighbours’ letterboxes. The Carnival Triumvirate helped them with signing the letters and stuffing envelopes. The measure was organized and captured in photographs by Kamil Rachwal: the results were unusual moments with no historical precedents, which still make us think today.
