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. Moving from place A to place B has become a regular part of our lives. Emigration, forced or chosen, 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 change in the perception of home and transformations of the own identity.
Since the realisation of the exhibition which was initially planned,
became difficult in the current situation, Barbora Demovičová invests the time at the moment to develop an online research platform.
This online platform includes the research trajectory, interviews, essays, bibliography and an archive of the project.
Part of the research and the development happens “live” in the R. – Raum für drastische Massnahmen and be acessible not only online but also in the physical space.
