The Red Star Line Museum welcomes this spring the Hungarian-Syrian artist Róza El-Hassan with her Breeze 2017 art installation.

The art installation of Róza El-Hassan is a search for answers to practical and existential questions about migration, and home. For the Red Star Line Museum, based on traditional Syrian homes, she will build a “dome” that functions both practically and symbolically as a retreat. The “dome”, surrounded by drawings and sculptures, will be in the middle of a colored garden, which represents a real shelter. The whole has a cosmological round shape with in the middle the “dome”, like the sun amidst planets. With this installation, El-Hassan wants to push the public to think about migration.
