“Unfortunately, to get to the future one has to live through the present.” (Hanif Kureishi)

Ausgeträumt… addresses a principle atmosphere of the present, one of disillusionment, almost resignation, through which the social and political realities in broad sections of Europe, outside the realm of geopolitical demarcations, are perceived. It is a very general atmosphere that is variously motivated, depending on different ways of living, but which many nevertheless find inevitable.
