Abstract [en]

This essay is an investigation of the phenomenon of home as an abstract idea. In the first chapter The space in between, I attempt to pinpoint where it is exactly that I find myself situated in relation to ‘the inside’ and ‘the outside’. I then continue by looking into immigration and its consequences, such as the Freudian idea of melancholia and the desire to create substitutes, in One in thirty-three. In No walls, I examine four works by four artists, Thierry de Cordier, Meta Isæus–Berlin, Francesca Woodman and Kimsooja, and elaborate on their understanding and representation of the concept of home. Lastly, I look into my master project in A domestic matter, recounting its starting point and development.
