The existence and contributions of people of African origin are still insufficiently recognized in Germany, both in historiography and in public discourse. And if they are, they are often spoken about by others instead of letting them have their word. Homestory Germany breaks with this: 27 biographies tell of racism and exclusion in Germany, but also of the diversity and work of black people – in the course of our common history and in all areas of our society.

Which people flee for which reasons?What responsibility does Europe have when it comes to the causes of flight or the reception of migrants? “Migration in focus” is an analysis of these correlations and explains our immigration society as a continuous process. “Escape forwards” ties in with this on the individual level: The exhibition portrays different people with migration experiences in regards to their wishes, their achievements and their struggle for recognition in Germany.

They are designed for the outside space, the wind moves them and allows them to be recognized as kinetic sculptures. The movement of its elements is left to chance due to the weather. In this way, time is inscribed in the sculptures and not only made tangible as four-dimensional objects.
