Home Base Lab residency project is located in the neibourhood Pankow in Berlin. Together Homebase residency artist and Berlin guest artist investigate and interact with the inmediate surroundings. Pankow is located in a former East Berlin area. In housing buildings constructed during DDR times was very common to see metal structures on the gardens and patios to be use as clothing hangers for the summer periods. They became areas to socialize, but later after the wall felt these spaces have been abandoned and forgotten. By bringing the names written on the front doors over white clothes, the install was a temporary reminder  of how communities use to communicate on these areas.
