A World Not Ours / Part 2 | Mulhouse | May - Aug 2017

“The individual’s [interior surroundings] represent his universe, combining faraway places and memories of the past. A person’s living room provides a box seat at the theatre of the world.”

Walter Benjamin, Paris, capitale du XJXe siecle, 1939

 

The viewer can sit down on a chair and be surrounded by the wishes, dreams and reality of asylumseekers  who try to build up  a new life for themselves. He can see what they see while struggling with their memories, fears and hopes.
