Projekt Beschreibung

King Bansah and his Daughter

BY AGNES LISA WEGNER

In the German city Ludwigshafen lives a man who fixes cars in his own car shop while at the same time being king to over 200,000 people in Ghana. King Céphas Bansah, who has lived in Germany since 1970, governs his people from Ludwigshafen. He travels to West Africa several times a year to check on his aid projects and to be available to people on site. His daughter Katharina (38), whose mother is German, was born and raised in Germany. She is a free-lance graphic designer, a feminist free spirit, an artist, hippie and: a king’s daughter

For the first time after many years, Katharina accompanies her father to his kingdom in Ghana. She wants to get back in touch with that part of her identity, she wants to recharge her spiritual batteries and figure out if she wants to succeed to the throne someday. On this intense journey, Katharina sees her father with new eyes and realizes the meaning her Ghanaian side has for her life – and which it does not.
