The "Other" Home //

Onassis Cultural Foundation 2016 // 51st Dimitria 2016

What role does imagination play in the real world? How can it shape personal and public space? What is a ‘home’? Is a person with disabilities free to mould the environment in which they live? Is the welfare system equipped to cater for individual needs and desires? And who’s there to answer the anguished question every parent asks: “What will happen to my child when I am gone?”.

“The ‘Other’ Home” is the end results of months of research carried out by means of special workshops set up especially for the purpose and via questionnaires, group improvisations and interviews with people who find themselves in the difficult situation of living, without wanting to, outside the structure and protection of the family (in old people's homes, asylums, orphanages and other residential institutions). The production brings together society—the ‘big house’ in which we all live—and the ‘other’ home which society provides for vulnerable social groups, as well as the hopes, dreams, fears and expectations of En Dynamei’s members. Different views of a reality which usually remains hidden from sight are brought to light with a view to bridging the gap dividing us from the Other beside us.
