Home – Andreas Kaiser

HOME is a global project Andreas Kaiser began 3 years ago. He collected over 300 drawings of German Houses. With these drawings in 2003 he traveled to South Africa. In workshops throughout South Africa he collected drawings from children aged 8-12. After that he handed out the German drawings together with a piece of clay, to build a German house after the German drawing. All the houses were fired and shown in an installation in the Bag Factory Johannesburg and the Goethe Institute. In 2004 Andreas went to Australia and repeated the workshops with over 300 children. The Australian children built South African Homes to be shown at IASKA in Western Australia. Delhi is the third station of HOME. In several workshops surrounding Delhi Andreas worked with over 300 children again. All the Australian Homes built by Indian children were shown in a site specific installation at the KHOJ Studios, on display for only one day on Thursday the 29th of September 2005.
