Never change the Dhaka system? By selling their dreams of self-determination to a system so bitterly corrupted, the people in Dhaka seem to go to their limits in order to reach social independence.
With a constantly rising GDP of around 7 % e.y. the now almost 58 year old democracy has the ongoing problem to independently work on decreasing inequality and rising of religious extremism. Bangladesh, a 160 million strong society, depends on the whirlwind of national and international economical interests with ever present corruption. Caught in the running system that seems not to be changed by external interests, a majority is fighting their struggle against financial corruption, ecological problems and social issues as best as they can. Only believe seems to be the way to a better future and a path to fulfil a dream of success. However the current development seems to make this dream harder and harder to reach.
“About changing a running system” is a photoessay, focussing on the illusion in a never-ending economical growth and the upcoming religious extremism that slowly seems to cause a disillusion of identity and division.
