Germany votes

On September 24th, 2017 Germans go to the polls to decide who will serve as legislators in the Bundestag. Join us in following this exciting election with events in San Francisco and Washington DC. A photo dossier on street campaigns in Berlin and Munich shows how candidates are battling on the streets for votes. Cultural creatives and civil society actors, for instance in France, the Czech Republic and Japan tell us what they wish for in the time after the election.
