The retreat will look at space of home as a basis for artis­tic, cul­tur­al, social and urban pro­duc­tion and explore new crit­i­cal pos­si­bil­i­ties that it can offer, between pri­vate and pub­lic realms. The retreat is built around the explo­ration of the notion of home as a fluc­tu­at­ing and evolv­ing idea and real­i­ty, while con­sid­er­ing the poten­tial mod­el of the art res­i­den­cy as a plat­form of crit­i­cal exchange among par­tic­i­pat­ing artists, their extend­ed fam­i­ly mem­bers and the pub­lic. The spe­cial­iza­tion of the retreat is in devel­op­ing a ter­mi­nol­o­gy and set of artis­tic tools which can con­tribute to new imag­i­na­tions, in which home is  reap­pro­pri­at­ed as a time­ly artis­tic, social and urban frontier.

The retreat will end with an open house event cel­e­brat­ing the cul­mi­na­tion Home Frank­furt-Tel-Aviv exchange project, cap­tur­ing the over­all ini­tia­tive con­duct­ed over the last two years, as well as the out­comes of the artis­tic research retreat con­duct­ed on site over only 36 hours.
