In a special guided tour, the writer Saira Ansaari will build a narrative journey through the exhibition 'Altered Inheritances: Home is a Foreign Place' in Ishara Art Foundation. Through close observations and snippets of readings, she will touch upon fragmented histories of dislocation and belonging, and the eternal search for a ‘home’.
