In April 2023, katharinajej is invited by the cultural association riesa efau to Dresden Friedrichstadt to work on site on the theme of oases and clearings.
The district of Friedrichstadt has been foreign to katharinajej until now. That should change. katharinajej wants to get to know the district and its inhabitants. But she is warned about Friedrichstadt from various sides. She should take care of herself and not put herself in danger.
katharinajej remembers Little Red Riding Hood, who was taught to fear the wolf before she went into the forest.
She slips into a red coat and packs cups, tea, coffee and biscuits into a wicker basket. With a queasy feeling, but above all a lot of curiosity, she sets off for Friedrichstadt. Despite, or perhaps because of, the many warnings.
In retrospect, katharinajej writes about the encounters that occurred. The diary-like text tells of approaching strangers, getting to know them and the prejudices and obstacles that reveal themselves in the process.
