What does 'home' mean to you? Love? Security? Family? Belonging? Identity? Loss? Fear?
For forced migrants, 'home' is a fractured concept. It represents somewhere they are fleeing; somewhere that is temporary, unsafe, unwelcoming; somewhere unfamiliar to build a new life – to survive. When displacement lasts five, ten, twenty years – or more - home becomes a translocal property: home is here and there simultaneously.
This exhibition represents just one part of a programme of films, documentaries, art and performance exploring the theme of ‘home’.
The Oxford Human Rights Festival is run by students on the Development and Emergency Practice Masters programme within the School of Architecture.
