A space becomes our own when we can design and furnish it according to our own visions and fill it with life. When in exile, these spaces may take the form of coordinates that can help convey a feeling of security in a foreign environment. Three young artists from Syria – Rula Ali, Amer El Akel and Alina Amer – are making an appearance to show their artistic concepts at the Goethe-Institut Damascus | In Exile. The facilities there will be transformed through collaborations with other artists and interactive installations. They will be conceptually accompanied by Berlin-based artist Nasan Tur.
