My name is Mohan Dehne, I am a fine artist photographer. Born in Syria, living and working for more than 15 years in the Netherlands. I am working since 2 years on a research about belonging and the Syrian identity. This photography project aims to reflect the loyalty schizophrenia.
Are the Syrian people going to have the belonging Schizophrenia later?
Since the outbreak of protests in Syria 2011, and the subsequent social changes, the issue of the Syrian identity was raised. Does the asylum experience rouse the question about their identity? Does the immigration experience rouse the same question as well? Were there a motive to search for the Syrian identity in the new communities? Is "Asylum" one of the new Syrian identity qualities?
The importance of this research in this critical stage of the Syrian contemporary history is because it is monitoring and documenting the changes that take place for the Syrian people in their new residency places, including the idea of belonging and loyalty to the homeland Syria.
To be able to publish the image results for this research in an exhibition and a book, I need your support
Thanks a lot for your donations and sharing this project.
