The exhibition New Heimat at the Frankfurter Kunstverein was conceived in cooperation with the Frobenius Institute (Institute for Ethnography) at the Goethe University. It documents how the phenomenon of globalization does not necessarily lead to the disappearance of local cultures, but can instead give birth to new, hybrid cultures, in which Western influences experience transformation and traditional cultures are assimilated. The catalogue presents works that subject the phenomenon of globalization to a productive revision, and investigates the hallmarks of mobility and integration in a postcolonial world.
