Freelance artist and photojournalist Lena Reiner, who has already been to Afghanistan three times – this time, under Taliban rule of all things, was her longest stay. In a video and photo installation, she takes the visitors with her into a country that is once again facing new challenges and can hardly be grasped with words. The Taliban brought freedom to travel, but took away many other freedoms, especially for the women in the country.

She tries to approach the complexity of the situation with snapshots, interviews, videos, and atmospheric images. Not to give answers, but to raise questions and create connections.
