The Meinblau Projektraum is pleased to present a solo exhibition by Hadas Amster. In her work, Amster examines the mechanisms that structure human behavior in artificial habitats and the dynamic between them and their cultural history. 

About

”Almost Home” is the result of historical and emotional research conduct by the artist Hadas Amster following the footprints of 3 locations in Berlin: The Zoologischer Garten in West Berlin, with its history of “Völkerschau” shows featuring people alongside animals such as great apes. A nightclub by a Jewish architect from the late 1920’s that the Nazis attempt to erase the memory of its existence. And the contemporary 25hours Hotel Bikini Berlin with its view on the zoo and an interior design concept of the „urban jungle" theme.

For the Meinblau project space, Amster created a site-specific installation which focuses on the viewer’s sensations. The exhibition combines different media – augmented reality, video, sculpture, and performance.

The installation unfolds the possibility of changing viewpoints as it challenges the viewers in multiple ways to sense, discuss and react to the way we map memory. It deals with issues of replacement and displacement and the struggle of identity and empathy in between.
