At the end of 2013, three major conflicts overlapped in Hamburg: the fight for the autonomous cultural centre Rote Flora, the disputes about the right to remain of the refugees from Lampedusa and the protests against the demolition of the ESSO tower blocks. Just before Christmas, the police used violence to break up a demonstration and the situation escalated. The police then set up so-called "danger zones", activists from the area of St. Pauli, which had been particularly affected by this development, made toilet brushes their symbol of protest and organized a pillow fight on the Reeperbahn. Gefahrengebiete & andere Hamburgensien is the essay-like chronicle of a "hot winter", the after-effects of which are still felt in the city today.
