With a stranger sleeping on your couch; inside the boxes at the storage facility; surrounded by the information you share in the cloud; after clearing customs at the airport; where your passport allows you to reside. Being at home has different definitions nowadays, both within domestic settings and in the spaces defined by national boundaries.
After Belonging addresses and imagines the objects, spaces, and territories of a transforming condition of belonging. Global circulation of people, information, and goods has destabilized what we understand by residence, questioning spatial permanence, property, and identity—a crisis of belonging. These transfers bring greater accessibility to ever-new commodities and further geographies. But, simultaneously, circulation also promotes growing inequalities for large groups, kept in precarious states of transit. After Belonging analyzes the ways in which architecture participates and intervenes in both our attachment to places and collectivities—Where do we belong?—as well as our relation to the objects we produce, own, share, and exchange—How do we manage our belongings?
