The exhibition addresses the complex concept of 'Home' in contemporary photography. Geographically, it is centered around the Balkan countries, Poland, the Czech Republic, Kosovo, Rumania, Hungary and Russia –parts of the world in which the structural and societal changes that followed the end of the Cold War have resulted in a particularly pronounced search for identity.
The exhibited projects were created by 13 artists who are either of Eastern European nationality, or have explored a range of Eastern European countries within the context of their work. A particular focus is placed on the loss of homeland that occurred across Eastern Europe when the borders were redefined after the second world war.
A strong emphasis is also placed on the possible meanings the term 'home' can have in the present day – such as a location, a network of family and friends, a landscape, or a childhood home.
