SILA YOLU focuses on the highway route between Western Europe and Turkey which is mostly used by Turkish immigrants since 1960s. This is the same route which is nowadays famous as Western Balkan route and crossed by the refugees in the opposite direction to Europe. We are interested not only in the physical space between the two places, but also in the emotional space in which concepts of culture, identity and community rapidly interchange. The outcome of the on-site and archival research will be presented in a mobile audio-visual installation/ exhibition which will be shown in Berlin and Istanbul. In the parallel program we light up the subject with screenings and talks. A book with selected texts, interviews and pictures is published, as well and can be ordered at bi’bak.
Mobile Exhibition from 22.09.2016 -9.10.2016 in diffrent locations in Berlin.
In collaboration with DOMID – Dokumentationszentrum über die Migration in Deutschland,
funded by Fonds Soziokultur.
