go_HOME: Exploring Issues of Exile and Displacement [PDF]
by Jeanne Pearlman
This reflective essay documents the context, content, and unique circumstances of go_HOME, an international artist residency intended to generate dialogue about issues of exile and displacement. The project was centered in conceptual art, operated globally as well as locally, and experimented with real and virtual dialogue. In her role as Animating Democracy's project liaison to go_HOME, Pearlman observed the project as it unfolded. She engaged with organizers and artists in joint inquiry to draw insights and deepen understanding about the work of arts-based civic dialogue along a persistently challenging project path. Here, Pearlman situates the go_HOME project within the context of Animating Democracy's evolving and multifaceted perspective on arts-based civic dialogue.
