Home—Topia is an ongoing contemporary art research and exhibiting project, putting focus on the current forms of migration, rooting, unrooting and life in between cultures. Home—Topia is examining the notion of home, sense of belonging and its connection to the physical space.
Home—Topia is based on the assumption that various forms of mobility, migration and life on the move have become one of the basic characteristics of today’s world. Emigration, forced or voluntary, across the national borders or from the countryside to the metropolis, has become an essential experience of our time. Among other things, this experience brings changes to the perception of home and transforms one’s identity.
Home—Topia Part 1 took place in Berlin gallery Raum für drastische Maßnahmen in June 2020. Home—Topia Part 1 was an interactive video installation placed in the gallery windows. One screen was playing a narrative video, focusing on the notion of home and subjective experience of life between cultures. Second screen was connected to the camera, recording the visitors, mapping their faces and overlaying them with series of new identities.
