On 07/07/2017, the second day of the G20 summit in Hamburg, fierce riots evolved in the Schanzenviertel district near the summit. The Schulterblatt street was a “cop free zone” until 11pm only one day after the police violently dispersed the legal “Welcome to Hell” demonstration at their starting point.

Burning barricades and a police helicopter with a searchlight can be seen on the photo. This dystopian picture offered itself looking from a rooftop onto the Schulterblatt street, it was published one week after the summit on the Cover of “Der Spiegel”, one of europe’s most influential magazines.
