Nine essays on home, identity and ruins. Writers, artist curators, and researchers, discuss homelessness and war, utopias of free movement, reconstructing cities and their histories, and the ethics of art. Viewpoints from Benelux, Finland, and Syria are bound together by artist Anssi Pulkkinen's 'Street View (Reassembled)', a mobile installation of a ruined Syrian home. The essays offer surprising perspectives into timely themes in today's world.
With contributions by Umayyad Abu-Hanna, Marwa Al-Sabouni, Jaako Hämeen-Anttila, Hanna Johansson, Anssi Pulkkinen, Max Ryynänen, Issa Touma, Rosa te Velde, Vincent van Velzen and the Finnish Cultural Institute for the Benelux.
