Recalling Home is a collaborative work of current CAT Cologne artists-in-residence, Somar Jbawi (1972, Damascus) and Philippa Ndisi-Herrmann (1985, Bonn, lives in Nairobi, Kenya), with Felipe Castelblanco and BorderlessTV, a film initiative of young people with and without refugee experience in Cologne. The films shown are about the loss of homeland from the perspective of exile, but also the poetry of arriving in a new country and the development of a new home. The title refers to the painful memory of a lost homeland, but also to the process and the development of a feeling and a new definition of home in a new environment.

There will be a moderated discussion with all participants.

CAT Cologne supports international emerging artists working in the field of social practice and community engaged work. During a working grant to spend 1–3 months in Cologne, artists are invited to realize a process-oriented project that picks up issues that are specific to context and engages with local communities. Each project closes with a small publication and a final presentation. A number of social events such as Dinner Parties and Brunches are part of the framing program.

The project’s task is to support the dialogue between diverse communities and engage them to their own constructive actionism by providing clever and creative ways of participation.
