Shop doors remain closed in winter 2020/21 . But the shop windows remain open. The mannequins continue to do their job: they present goods. Or do they do more?
It is time to stand in front of the windows and take a closer look, even without the intention to buy.
In search of the work of the window dressers, a curious tour leads through the shopping streets of Hanover.

The tour continues on Lister Meile. For two mannequins, the winter ends behind bars, almost completely hidden from outside eyes.
