Entry Description: What does home mean to you? How is the experience of home related to a place or a feeling? How does this experience manifest itself around a life in constant transition?
This project explores the concept of home within London’s squatting scene. What might commonly be perceived as a shelter for the homeless or poor is often a conscious choice - an alternative and communal way of living. By becoming part of the squatting community, Corinna Kern embarked on a personal journey through which she discovered homes that extend far beyond a physical existence. From warehouses to design studios, from restaurants to garden centers, each place has gained its own vibe of the people and their lifestyle – and with these a sense of home.
