Home and away
The group of people without a fixed residence, known as modern-day nomads or transmigrants, is growing. Being constantly ‘on the move’ and ‘homeless’ is what these people have in common. Expats from the European quarter, refugees and homeless people explored for several months the notions of privacy and intimacy that are the foundations of a home. They exhibit their most precious objects and portray their stories. Because no matter where people live, in a row house or under a bridge, one always creates this sense of home with a couple of items.
The expo was already on display at the Cinquantenaire Museum (2010), the Kaaitheater (2010), the Halles de Schaerbeek (2011) and during the Enterfestival Gent (2011).
