A place called Дom
SomoS Art House, Kottbusser Damn 95, Berlin
23-26 January 2019
Doro Zinn who undertook a residency at Street Level last August as part of Photographic Parallels, will participate in the exhibition A place called Дom at SomoS Art Space alongside artists Stephanie Steinkopf and Tatiana Hahn, curated by Anastasia Leonova.
In her photographic work, Doro Zinn addresses migration and home, spending time at the place of Berlin residents over the course of many years, while portraying their individual ways of dealing with the past and the future. Doro Zinn provides an exploration of the lives and identities of four young individuals in Future Kids. The children of Muslim immigrants from Jordan, Turkey and Palestine, Leila, Ilhan, Mohammed, and Coco grant the viewer a look into their lives through Zinn’s essayistic portraits. Photographed since Summer 2016 Berlin, the 1960s tower blocks of Neukölln, historic buildings of Kreuzberg and sports grounds in Moabit provide a backdrop to their search for identity. Text written by the subjects themselves accompany the photographic works.
