HomeBase Project is a nomadic artist-run-residency and research program exploring the notion of 'home',
devoted to the creation of new platforms, models and tools for artistic communal hosting in cities.
HomeBase Project was founded in 2006 in Brooklyn NYC by Artist Anat Litwin. Since it has inhabited buildings in changing urban neighborhoods in New York, Berlin, Jerusalem, and Saitama, Japan, transforming them into vital homes for artistic creation and cross-cultural exchange, in collaborating with diverse communities of artists, local residents, educators, urban designers, municipal facilitators and social change agents.
HB grew out of the need to challenge the role artists play in shaping their surrounding in response to the rapidly growing urban landscape, and as an alternative to the commercial art world. Operating at the axis of contemporary art, social innovation and meaningful urban change, HomeBase seeks to raise new possibilities for artistic, educational and civic engagement in everyday urban life, while reflecting on essential questions of identity, belonging and displacement. HomeBase Project is a hosting platform, a movement, and a work of art all at once. We welcome you home.
NEWS: HomeBase Project has been selected to be part of the New Saitama Triennale on the topic of 'future' and 'soft urbanism' taking place in FALL 2016, where the project will celebrate a first decade.
