reconstructions

Rising out of the ashes of damage and neglect, reconstructions do not search for a former authenticity, but hold a complex identity that encompasses past and present. They are (re)claimed, (re)built, (re)written, (re)worked. The Reconstructions atmosphere is specifically focusing its efforts on identifying spaces that speak to re-writing personal and collective narratives through the lenses of mass incarceration and displacement. At their first project site, collaborators are looking to explore the concepts of home, healing, and trauma in relation to incarceration and re-entry. Their second site seeks to address gentrification and displacement as lived realities within a changing Philadelphia.
