Gašper Kunšič 

Mein Zuhause


Mein Zuhause (My Home) (2020) explores the ideas of home and homeland. The work is rooted in the experience of living abroad in voluntary exile and is the result of an examination of the importance of (not) belonging to a specific community.

Gašper Kunšič often mines his own personal biography for the purpose of his work. Through the medium of the exhibition, he tries to rethink and recontextualize the course of his own personal history as well as our collective history. His works span various media and comprise visual references to his native Slovenia and former Yugoslavia. They usually take the shape of spatial installations, which the artist uses to translate interpersonal relationships to transmedia art.
