What would happen if a right-wing populist party ruled Germany? This question is the starting point for Bendjama's future vision. Inspired by an election poster with the inscription "Berlin needs Blue" - she embarks on a journey through time and creates a gloomy visual prognosis.
In photographs, installations and in a video, Bendjama documents one AfD - "Abgründe für Deutschland" ruled Germany from 2026.
The fictional documentation questions the existence of parallels between the growing popularity of the AfD and the rise of the NSDAP.
