On Fraternities in Tübingen

Fraternities polarize. For many people, fraternities are a sexist, right-wing, beer drinking bunch of men. On the other hand, fraternity students try to disprove their negative image. They talk about the great community. I knew only the prejudices. But I wanted to know more, getting an insight into a world that was closed to me until then. There are more than 30 fraternities in Tübingen, and the spectrum is wide: each fraternity is different, has its own rules and its own unique selling point. The portrait series shows fraternity students from different fraternities in Tübingen.
