Home is a powerful word. It means many things to many people.
Home can be the house you return to each night. It can be a distant country.
Home can be the voices and presence of loved ones. Or the vulnerable planet we live on.
Home can be a memory, a place in the past.
Or a future place you dream of discovering.
When we tell stories of home, we tell our own stories.
Home is a place we all have a stake in.

Richly illustrated, Dreamhome brings together artworks by 26 artists from around the world, as well as diverse contextual imagery which includes family photographs, film stills, architectural drawings and historical records.

This unique and engagingly written book reveals how some of today's most exciting artists are reimagining the idea of home for our unsettled times.

Artists include: Hoda Afshar (Iran/Australia); Isabel and Alfredo Aquilizan; Philippines/Australia); Igshaan Adams (South Africa); Phyllida Barlow (UK); Zarina Hashmi (India/USA); Simone Leigh (USA); Tracey Moffatt (Australia); Michael Parekowhai (NZ); John Prince Siddon (Australia/Walmajarri).
Justin Paton is an award-winning and extensively published author and highly regarded art curator. In his evocative style and over the seven chapters, Paton investigates a place we all have a stake in - from houses of memory to upturned houses, from haunted houses to light houses, from intimate spaces of shelter to optimistic future communities.
