Free Chico

Commissioned work for Spiegel Online.

On 3. April 2018 Chico a Staffordshire killed his two holders in Hannover, Germany. When the shelter manager announced to euthanize Chico, he was threatened with a shitstorm. The city and the public prosecutor's office also received threats. An online petition with 300.000 signatures couldn’t stop the city administration to euthanize Chico. The portraits were made at a picket after Chicos death. Many of the protesters had a big distrust against media and the city administration. Even conspiracy theories where openly discussed at the picket.
