During her time in Berlin, Camille Kaiser has been working on a new book project titled "Today I left home and".Interweaving fiction and non-fiction, the text explores the possibility of Berlin to be a new home through various scenarios and situations of everyday life. Each chapter starts with the same sentence, "Today I left home and", and unfolds into narratives that navigate through both the present and memory to challenge understandings of the feeling of (not) feeling at home. Errance, lack of adventure, and a vain quest for exoticism are recurring elements that confront perceptions of living in urban spheres. The Salon will be a performative reading by the artist of some extract from the book.
