In einer Welt ohne Grenzen ist Heimat kein Begriff des Ortes, sondern der Zeit. Edgar Reitz, Tagesspiegel 5.9.2004 ... we may say that deeply-loved places are not necessarily visible, either to ourselves nor to others. Places can be made visible by a number of means: rivalry or conflict with other places, visual prominence, and the evocative power of art, architecture, ceremo- nials and rites. Human places become vividly real through drama- tization. Identity of place is achieved by dramatizing the aspira- tions, need, and functional rhythms of personal and group life. Yi-Fu Tuan
