Choose your own Future

The project Choose Your Own Future by Alisa Sonntag, Christin Pomplitz and Björn Berger emerged from an examination of how certain characteristics influence the lives of many people. Characteristics that we can often do little to change.

There are many characteristics that can lead to people being discriminated against. As not all of them could be included in the project, a selection was made. This does not mean that characteristics that are not mentioned lead to less discrimination. Suffering cannot be weighed up against each other. The project analyses in particular: Gender, parents’ level of education, sexual orientation and migration background.
