    Kampnagel – P1 Tickets

In the face of global migration movements and crises in a world that is above all economically globalized, the terms »heimat« (homeland) and »nation« are currently experiencing a discursive and political renaissance. »Heimat« expresses a yearning for an idealized space promising childlike comfort and security while »nation« refers to the idea of a homogenous community composed of supposedly similar people. Both terms share a function as spaces of political projection. What happens when »Heimat« is revived as a principle of national and territorial origin? What does it mean when the two concepts of »heimat« and »nation« come together in the German Federal Interior Ministry’s recent expansion into a Heimat Ministry? How are these concepts discussed in other regional contexts? Where are they fragile and where are the alternatives?

The HEIMATPHANTASIEN (homeland fantasies) conference critically examines the terms »nation« and »heimat«: Over two days, the concepts’ implicit projections, attractiveness, contradictions and historical development are discussed. It examines the potential of understanding migration as an interruption of the national narrative and gets to the root of the traditional entanglement between nationalist ideology and patriarchal rule, explores the historical contemporaneity of colonialism and nation-building – and discusses contemporary attempts to create transor post-national communities beyond national identities.
