The exhibition aims to create an important dialogue on alienation and belonging to reconfigure the role of artists in reimagining inclusive politics. The trope of home and homelessness is an important subject in the art exhibitions of the last few decades.
One of the important consequences of the political chaos since the ’90s was the consolidation of populist politics and along with it various political formations that foregrounded identity as an important trope. Questions of belonging, home, homeland, and who does not belong became an important part of the everyday political discourse. The concept of citizenship became fragile and in their own country, many citizens became aliens. Even though recent protests have exposed the fragility of constitutionally guaranteed citizenship and equal rights for all, they have not been able to successfully propose possibilities to reimagine the idea of citizenship, politics of asylum and creative intervention that cuts across geographical borders.
