a house is a house is a house
The 2021 festival 'A house is a house is a house' opened with an exhibition and a diverse accompanying programme of the current perception of home and makes the social inequality visible which is increasing due to the colonial, patriarchal and capitalist power structures that exist around the world.

Home often means a dwelling, a place of intimacy. We withdraw here and lock the door against the outside. Thought of less as an architectural structure, it is linked to feelings and moods that arise from each individual's experience. Starting from a place of care, belonging, constancy and the creation of forms of life that is believed to be safe, it remains for many a place of longing or memory that manifests itself in its absence. Most of the time, there is an inherent local bond and yet it remains primarily tied to human coexistence. While it is fluid and contrary, it can also be perceived as isolation or the feeling of being exposed to oneself or to something else. Social disadvantage and privileges are noticeable here.Trauma, violence and discrimination can also be experienced and / or processed here. In juxtaposition with the home of others, their possible deprivation and the non-domestic space, it unfolds its socio-critical potential and illustrates how domestic conditions determine the development of our life. From here, each one of us looks out into the world.
Due to the current Covid pandemic FOTODOKS 2021 opened without a big celebration event. Luckily we managed to stay open for the duration of the show even in times of restrictions and lockdowns. 2023 will hopefully be a better year.
Apart from a few live events in our framework programme, you can find the artists' interviews and discussion panels on Spotify and Apple. Please feel free to listen in...
