Die Baustelle.

Do you tell yourself that you love yourself?

sometimes in my head, I don’t say it out loud. When I actually do something based on love, I feel that there was zero intentions of anything. It was something really genuine from inside, then I look at myself, and tell me self: ‘good one, love you’


Amro, also known as Aaro, is an independent Egyptian artist based in Cologne, Germany and co-founder of @adhd_records. They began their journey in electronic music production in their hometown in Egypt in 2011, and in 2017 moved to Germany to continue making their own music. Two years later, they started a career as a DJ.

What is love and how do we all deal with it? How have we learned about love and what has love taught us? How has love changed our lives and how does it change?

Amro, Femdom, and Lex … Three queer artists from Cologne tell of love in their childhood, their first love stories, the exclusion dynamics of love that do not reflect the diversity of identities, and their own definition of love. The videos will be displayed in the exhibition “LOVE?” at the Rautenstrauch Joest Museum in Cologne.
