Virtual Panel Discussion on “Visualizing Translation” opens photography exhibit at Ann Arbor Public Library (2pm on October 9, 2021)

In October and November 2021, the Ann Arbor District Library will host a photography exhibit, curated by UM Professor Kristin Dickinson.

Entitled Homeland and Heimat in Detroit and Dortmund, the exhibit brings together photographs of Southwest Detroit (created by photojournalist Theon Delgado) and Northern Dortmund, Germany (created by photojournalist Peyman Azhari).

Shedding light on each neighborhood’s histories of migration, the exhibit offers an intimate look at immigrant-owned businesses; multilingual signage; and striking images of graffiti, street art, and other forms of visual creative expression. Together, these photographs prompt us to consider the many meanings of home and homeland from a multilingual perspective.

The exhibit runs from October 4-November 29, 2021 in the third floor gallery of the Ann Arbor District Library, Downtown Branch (345 South Fifth Ave in Ann Arbor).
