Feriel Bendjama examines the social consequences of a possible seizure of power by right-wing populists in Germany.

About

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.

Feriel Bendjama was born near Dresden in 1980. She grew up between Offenbach am Main and Algeria and has been living in Berlin since 2003. The current themes of her photo and video work are cultural and religious identities. Her work has been shown in variousindividual and group exhibitions; Including the Goethe Institute Ireland in Dublin, The Museum of History in Bonn, Theodor Heuss Museum in Brackenheim, the Stadtmuseum in Erlangen, the Mercator Foundation in Essen and Berlin.
