    Almost one year ago today, we launched the first chapter of HOMELAND in TRANSIT with works by eight Hong Kong artists. In only a few months, our world has changed dramatically and each word in this title has developed a wider scope of meanings and expanded relevance: we feel an urgent need to further communicate and encourage more exchanges and discussions. Updates on the next exhibition and VIDEO TALKS to come.▫️ 。 。 #hongkong#homelandintransit#curatorialproject#basel#switzerland#roots#senseofbelonging#culturalidentity#migration#contemporaryart#whereareyoufrom#videotalks#exhibition

  • Logo Design Concept

    The Homeland in Transit identity is a neutral alphanumeric typeface with monospace structure mixed with Morse code. Based on the everyday elements we encounter on journeys and travels -- train station and airport display boards, baggage tags, boarding passes, electronic tickets – the layout is a mix of simple information presented to be universally and easily understood with incomprehensible codes and symbols applied for professional or technical purposes. Letters, numbers, dots and dashes flow erratically to fill whatever area it needs to cover. Designed by Donald Mak

  • EXHIBITION POSTPONED - HEIMAT im WANDEL / HOMELAND in TRANSIT exhibition chapter in Zollikon

    As a precaution against the coronavirus, the organiser Kulturkreis Zollikon has decided to postpone the exhibition. New dates will be announced in due course. We hope the virus will be controlled soon. Stay healthy!


    Thank you very much for joining us at our first HOMELAND in TRANSIT VIDEO TALKS which was launched in Basel on Tuesday 25th February in which we presented Hong Kong artists May Fung and Law Yik Mui’s video works. Many congratulations to the two artists on the first presentation of their works in Switzerland. 🎥📹 A big thank you to the audience who brought us non-native plants and shared with us their stories to make the video installation of Law Yuk Mui’s ‘Junk Bay, The Plant’ (1990-present) more alive. Stay tuned as the installation will continue to grow in Basel. 🌴🍀🌿🌵 Thank you again to the two Hong Kong artists May Fung and Law Yuk Mui for making a video conversation for our VIDEO TALKS in Basel, especially during this difficult time of the coronavirus outbreak in Hong Kong. Our thoughts go to the Hongkongers. 🙏🏼 #homelandintransit #VIDEOTALKS #basel #hongkong #hongkongartists #imageofacity #shesaidwhyme #junkbay #diaspora #migration #footage #cultureofdisappearence #ackbarabbas #reclamation #landdevelopment #transplant #reroot #plant #nature #foreign #local #nonnative #conversations

  • Auspicious Cycle

    Thank you everyone for joining the inaugural exhibition of our curatorial project HOMELAND in TRANSIT in Basel last June where we discussed the notions of boundary, cultural identity, collective memory, root, history, diaspora, dislocation through works by eight Hong Kong artists. Transitioning into a fresh decade and a new lunar zodiac 12-year cycle with unknown possibilities, we look forward in 2020 to expand our community of family and friends and explore new forms of exchange: first with a VIDEO TALKS series planned for different locations including Switzerland, Hong Kong, Japan and Taiwan and with upcoming exhibitions at Villa Meier-Severini Zollikon in March and Basel Old Town in June. We take this opportunity to wish everyone an auspicious Year of the Rat filled with creative energies!
