'What is 'home'? And where does it live for you?'
In this intimate performance, Afghan-American artist Aman Mojadidi will share his changing experiences of ‘home’ in the context of the ‘war on terror’, the migrant crisis, and terrorism in the West.
Mojadidi’s work blurs lines between fact and fiction, documentation and imagination; encompassing themes of belonging, identity politics, conflict, ‘artifactual’ history, and migration. Explore the politics of homeland by discussing a series of objects and video clips created or collected by the artist himself.
The performances will last approx. 45 mins
Suitable for audiences 16+.
