Event: Imaginations of HOME 
 
"What is the meaning of the word ‘home’ for those who live in or have been forced to flee a context of war, violence, occupation, and displacement? A home can refer to a physical place, but it can also exist in memories and imagination. In this first Sunday afternoon event in the context of exhibition HOME, we depart from the writing of the famous Palestinian poet Mahmoud Darwish (Palestine 1948 – United States 2008). His work is imbued with a profound desire to turn the melancholy memories of his childhood home into an imaginary poetic landscape for the Palestinian people".
