This discussion forcused on the relationship between writing, artists, and displacement. There was an assemblage of different pieces, arranged into three categories: space, place, and outside.
Introduction written by Eleonora Narbone:
The concept of home, of belonging, the desire to be part of something is a feeling that’s plagued many of us, at one point or another in life. It is perhaps one of the most commonly uncomfortable feelings that we experience as children, teenagers, adults. In the wider world, due to the everchanging and cruel political situation around us, the possibility of displacement is a harsh reality all of us must confront. This week we’ll be discussing the relationship between displacement, artmaking and home.
