HomeBase and schir partnered up to realize HomeBase VI Jerusalem in Jerusalem in 2012. The project adapts the model of HomeBase New York and Berlin for the Jerusalem context. The HomeBase Project, a site-specific urban art project exploring the notion of home,was founded by Israeli/American artist and curator Anat Litwin in New York City in 2006 as a grass roots, artist run project. The HomeBase Project has been acknowledged by the media as a “new model for public art” and has conducted six projects in neighborhoods in both NYC and recently in an old Brewery in Pankow, Berlin.
The content of HomeBase lies upon the question and idea of home and identity: Is there a connection visual practices and artistic creation? What is the meaning of home in today’s dynamic society and globalized world? How do artists and surrounding communities interact?
