Arash Hampay is an activist and photographer from Iran, now based in Hamburg, Germany. He is the founder of OurHouse Community, a help centre and mutual aid project in Athens, Greece, and OurHouse Soup, in Hamburg and elsewhere, making and sharing soup with others. He also organized the travelling art exhibition “Why Borders?” (currently showing in Hildesheim, Germany).
Having survived Moria refugee camp, Arash Hampay went to Athens to make soup for homeless people. Then he went to Hamburg and made more soup and an art exhibition. What if this is literature? We sent Chloe Ruthven to Germany to find out.
