In the backyard of WH22, the Vietnamese Immigrating Garden holds plants and stories from immigrated Vietnamese families.
Nhà Sàn Collective’s member Tuấn Mami planted the garden together with the Vietnamese community of Kassel, as an extension of his study of the histories and societies of Vietnamese immigrants.
The Immigrating Garden continues Tuấn Mami’s research of Vietnamese immigration in different countries, migrating from Asia to Western Countries. The ongoing trans-geographic project aims to relearn our human’s migrating history by looking into Vietnamese immigration communities that consist of political refugees, imported laborers, students and others. The plants tell stories of people who left their homeland behind to relocate to a new place, new cultures.
