In Transit is a multidisciplinary exhibition that focuses on the tentative, limbo-like experience of living between different cultures. The exhibition explores the stories of immigrants who traverse the no-man’s land that exists between home and hope.

They experience the deep absence of the loss of loved ones, familiar places, and citizenship. The photography and video works in this exhibition are created in Germany, Jordan, Lebanon, Italy, and Iran, and are testimonies to day-to-day survival alongside the struggle to find a sense of normalcy and stability and a place to call home.
