A PLACE CALLED ДОМ
Curated by Anastasia Leonova
Opening Reception: Tuesday, January 22nd, from 6-9pm
Open January 23 – 29th, daily 2-7pm, entry is free
SomoS is proud to present the group exhibition A place called ДОМ, in which photographers Doro Zinn, Stephanie Steinkopf, and Tatiana Hahn explore the multi-layered meaning of home.
While staying at SomoS in Berlin, Ukrainian curator Anastasia Leonova researched the themes of migration and cultural background, trying to understand the impact of deracination and alternate ways of feeling attachment. She presents home as referring to social phenomena rather than a physical structure, noting that in Berlin, where people constantly come and go, the idea of home is addressed in the context of temporal identity.
