In the Heart of Another Country: The Diasporic Imagination in the Sharjah Art Foundation Collection

October 28-March 12, 2023

Deichtorhallen, Deichtorstraße 1, Hamburg, Germany

Drawing from the Sharjah Art Foundation collection, In the Heart of Another Country showcases the work of more than 60 artists through over 150 artworks in all media, many of which have rarely, if ever, been seen outside of their original context. In the Heart of Another Country explores the concept of home—of longing, belonging, and rootedness— tracing a travelogue through multiple underrepresented sites, histories, and geographies within the art historical canon. The artists featured in the exhibition have traversed migratory routes from South and West Asia, through Africa, and the Caribbean.
