daHEIM: glances into fugitive lives

With reference to the immigrants' current situation after fleeing to Germany or Europe, the museum of
European cultures and  KUNSTASYL are in process of the realization of an exhibition:
"daHEIM: glances into fugitive lives" tries to explore through art and methods of cultural anthropology the know-how, desires, life perspectives and home environments of people who had to escape. The current topic is embedded into its historical context, using the example of people who fled within, to and from Europe in 19th and 20th century. The grand opening will take place on July 21, 2016.
The "a benign take-over" of the special show room at the Museum for European cultures through KUNSTASYL took place on March 4, 2016 with the hoisting of the KUNSTASYL flag outside of the museum.


View into the foyer of the MEK Museum of European Cultures. On May 17, 2015, Mohamed Firas had one stage of his flight, the part from Lybia to Italy over the sea, on a 17 meter red carpet in front of the home for asylum seekers in Staakener Strasse in Spandau performed. The recording of the performance "WELCOME" is played on the occasion of the "friendly takeover" of the exhibition space  by KUNSTASYL in the museum via two smartphones in life vests.
