Home is established by our relationship to the world around us, wherever we are. Nevertheless, we also occupy the places of our absence. Culture is constructed, in passing through a place, in what is taken with the departure, in what is left behind. Culture is a matter of subtraction and offering. Approaches to Absence seeks to distinguish between the appearance of belonging, and the movement of being. Can we ever go "home" again? Yes, however we can't stay. {Pasquale Verdicchio}
