Freedom, a Luxury?

How free is someone whose pension is so small that she can’t afford to see a doctor? Wherever social rights are lacking, individual liberties are at risk. The Freiraum project looks at places where poverty and penury hinder people in their development, asking who is marginalized and what sort of a future the underprivileged envision.

    Freedom is a common space that has to be filled by all who inhabit, enliven and narrate it. We must find our way towards a common position, or find our way back to one. more
