Artist Talk with Edmund de Waal, Mark Justiniani and Zuzanna Janin
[Translate to English:] Edmund de Waal
In "library of exile", Edmund de Waal acknowledges the work of writers who have been and are forced to migrate between cultures and languages. It reflects ideas of migration, exile and of conversation in many different languages. The "library of exile" is accompanied by two other extensive installations by Mark Justiniani und Zuzanna Janin and the hand-crafted Damascus Room. They look at different aspects of the fundamental questions of home, homelessness and memory, life between cultures and hospitality.
