Exhibition. The Bricks that Build a Home

  • Migratie Museum 42 Hoge Zand Den Haag, ZH, 2512 EM Netherlands (map)

The new Migration Museum in The Hague provides a visual insight into migration histories of the various migrant groups in The Hague, while at the same time highlighting the richness of the city's current cultural diversity. The Migration Museum sees migration as a constant and dynamic factor in Dutch society in general and in The Hague society in particular. The Hague was co-designed by the many groups of migrants who settled in the city. At the same time, many residents of the Hague have also left the city. The story of the inflow and outflow of people, thoughts and ways of life deserves a place where migration is central. The Migration Museum is the place in The Hague where people from different backgrounds can meet each other, share each other's stories. The museum wants to be a platform for creative meeting and dialogue. 

The exhibition that Nest makes in collaboration with the Migration Museum focuses on a universal and recognizable subject: the home. Home can be a geographical place, a village or a country that carries cultural values and histories. But most of all home is the personal living environment, the place where family members come together with all their specific behaviors and characters and share the same histories and stories and speak the same language.
