Thesis: Herd vs. Crowd

'In conflict with the rituals of Fasnet, a carnival held annually in and around the Black Forest, I explore my own identity and sense of belonging within my homeland.
HERDING attempts to take ritual and its costumes out of conservative and patriarchal hands and transform. From citizen to "Wildermann" and from individual to herd-being.
You have arrived at the dress-up chest. Imagine yourself as the other. The possibilities are endless.
