Description

People are always on the move, leaving places, the past, emotions, social groups or cultural contexts behind them. Hoping for improvement, they turn their backs on the familiar and set out to discover new territory. This human impetus changes the lives of those who leave and of those who stay behind. The places people have left behind tend to be idealized in memory, to become places of longing and nostalgia.

Traditionally, the German term “Heimat” describes a person’s immediate local surroundings, their home. But the term can also be used to describe a sense of belonging or affiliation to a cultural, political or philosophical identity. The photographers of the FASB have set out to search for a “HeimatAnderswo”, a “home from home”.

In this second part of the group exhibition, Edith Maria Balk, Erhard Flach, Gabriele Kuhlewind and Thilo Seibt will be showing their work.
