GOHAR DASHTI
In Transit
Stadtgalerie Saarbrücken

September 11, 2020 - January 1, 2021

'In Transit' is a multidisciplinary presentation that focuses on the tentative, limbo-like experience of living between different cultures, exploring the stories of immigrants who traverse the no-man’s land that exists between home and hope.

The lives of those fleeing from unsafe, economically depressed homelands towards dreams of a more secure future are filled with boredom, sadness, fear, and apathy. They experience the deep absence of the loss of loved ones, familiar places, and citizenship. The photography and video works in this exhibition are created in Germany, Jordan, Lebanon, Italy, and Iran, and are testimonies to day-to-day survival alongside the struggle to find a sense of normalcy and stability and a place to call home.
