How do people define home? How can one find home in a foreign country? Different voices define their concept of this term, we learn about their homes and their significance. Home is separated from geographical features. Their homes are all over the world. In contrast to this, they all meet in an artificial microcosm – on a doorbell nameplate. This is where the protagonists’ stories are brought together. In the walk-in audio and video installation, we as visitors. stand outside their door ringing the bell to be let in. Every push of the button opens up another perspective on what home means.
