Germany - Your Faces", CARSTEN SANDER is now embarking on a search for the identity of a heterogeneous community consisting of over 447 million inhabitants in 27 European countries with "Faces Of Europe". On his journey through the European Union, Sander now once again portrays 1000 faces. With this work he sets a sign for integration and humanity. A statement for human rights, common values and a peaceful coexistence.

In various exhibitions in different settings and presentations the portraits of the 1000 Faces are exhibited and the public kit is presented.
