Imagine examines the issue of statelessness. In collaboration with an NGO, artist Florian Schwartz was put in touch with a number of individuals who have no officially recognised nationality. He photographed them and spoke with them about their daily lives and experiences with statelessness. The result is an extraordinary symbiosis between image and text, art and society. With unparalleled insight into the lives and worlds of the stateless, the project highlights a multifaceted issue often ignored in public discourse. At its core, however, it addresses fundamental questions about integration and human rights, the quest and longing for a life lived in dignity and self-determination.
