Homeland Afghanistan

a journey from East to West and back

Thursday 3 December 2009, the new research project Homeland Afghanistan – a journey from Oost to West will be opened by Charles Esche and Shafiq Omar, with a ‘slide show presentation’ and music.

The reason for this slide show presentation and the long terme research is the journey Shafiq Omar made to Afghanistan in the summer of 2009. To Shafiq Omar, this journey did not only mean a return to his homeland and family, but also a confrontation with the possibilities of art in one of the best known countries in the world.
