The exhibition re-examined the notion of "home" through 17 works of media art from Greece, Bulgaria and Turkey. Focusing on language, communities and public space as well as on networks, technology and algorithms, the participating artists commented on the current reality and raised new questions. Works based on personal recollections as well as collective projects came together to stimulate a dialogue about the essential need of belonging in today’s networked era.

A continuous, borderless, exhibition space was created in order to highlight the unstable nature and impermanence of media art works. The installation consisted of two rooms. The large digital projections were installed in the first room, while the second room was set up around an open workshop space.
