Dieter Daeman – No Place Like Home


No Place Like Home was primarily made during the European refugee crisis. However, instead of focusing on the outer borders of fortress Europe, No Place Like Home looks inward and shows how barriers and a distancing between people have been slumbering in the heart of our society for quite some time.

In this volume, Dieter Daeman depicts a society that is characterised by an impenetrability. It shows how at the centre of our communities, constructions like hedges and wooden palisades are used to demarcate the personal property and to frantically block the presence and gaze of the outsider. The series thus deals with troublesome contemporary issues such as distrust, a trend towards more and more individualisation, the inability of people to connect and a fading sense of community.
