FAIDRA Exhibition: New Homelands
Time & Location
About the Event
“New Homelands”. They encircle you or cast you away, offer you opportunities or defeat your dreams, become your own or stay foreign…
The immigration wave that followed the collapse of the Soviet Union was a shared experience of many member states of the European Union, which acted as host countries. It significantly changed the composition of their population, gave a boost to their economies, developed dynamic multi-cultural societies, but also heightened prejudices for the stranger, the “other”. At the same time, the humanitarian dimension of the adaptation and integration of the immigrants emerged as a determining factor in transforming the host country to a “new home” for them. The cohesion of the family plays an important role in this dimension.
The exhibition “New Homelands” turns the headlights to this feature of immigration: the separation of the family, sometimes its reunification, often its eventual split. Our goal is to highlight the issues that deeply affect the functioning and binding of the family in times of economic crisis – which inevitably leads to immigration.
