One World

Location: Bank of the river Main
Event: Annual Festival of the Museums Frankfurt 2007
Organization: Department of Multicultural Affairs (AMKA), Frankfurt


Frankfurt am Main am Main COSMOPOLITAN AND INTERNATIONAL

Immigration and emigration have characterised the City of Frankfurt throughout its history.
Today, approximately one quarter of Frankfurt’s residents have foreign citizenship. This does not include those of foreign origin, whose families have lived in Frankfurt for generations and who have acquired German citizenship, for example, through naturalisation. According to current statistics, around 40 percent of Frankfurt’s residents have a migration background.

Frankfurt is a cosmopolitan service metropolis and its popularity is due, not least of all, to its open city politics and its central location in the Rhine-Main region. Frankfurt’s residents include the employees of large service companies, artists, scientists, students from several universities and the employees of numerous diplomatic missions. There are also many workers from the commercial area and retail trade areas, hotels and restaurants and tradespersons. Refugees from all over the world have also found acceptance in Frankfurt. This diversity represents a special challenge for integration in Frankfurt am Main. Openness towards other cultures and tolerance towards strangers, on the one hand, and the idea of living together on the basis of a civil society have always been part of Frankfurt am Main, and make it Germany’s most international city.

I spent many hours under terrible conditions (heat, crowd) in front of the small stage from AMKA and took these fotos of dance groups from different nations living in Frankfurt. The focus was to catch their faces and expressions. Many of them were performing the very first time on stage in front of an audience (especially the younger ones). And now I`m fond of indian dance. Please take my apology for the many pictures I have posted of these beautiful indian dancer!



Note:
If you are the person captured in the photos and would not like your photos to be displayed in my gallery:

I shall remove the concerned photo right away.
Sorry for any inconvenience caused
