Layman's description

With the Coronavirus crisis, the urgency of homelessnesshas worsened worldwide. As a social group, the homeless are among the most vulnerable members of our societies. The exhibition not only analyzes central themes such as the visibility and invisibility of the homeless, but also the ambivalence of the reactions of the rest of society, which lie between repression and rejection. Homelessness is presented not as an individual tragedy, but as a problem of society that requires systemic solutions. In addition to an analysis of global statistics and their socio-political backgrounds, the current homelessness crisis in cities such as Tokyo, Mumbai, New York and Los Angeles will also be examined. In addition, the exhibition shows historical and contemporary architecture projects for the permanent reintegration of the homeless.
