The exhibition topics were (A) Creation of Value, (B) Migration, (C) Cultural Identity, (D) Social Segregation and (E) Interdependence. From May to June 2006, the Fanshop went on tour through Germany, and was visited by several thousand people in Dortmund, Cologne, Frankfurt, Stuttgart, Munich, Leipzig, Hannover, Hamburg and Berlin.
