From Almanya With Love

bi’bak is partnering up with Turkey’s most popular ‘counter-media’ channel 140journos for the short-film series Almanya’dan Sevgiler | From Almanya With Love. The series features six mini-documentaries directed by Çağdaş Erdoğan, focusing on a diverse range of stories of migration from Turkey to Germany.

Turbulent politics has played a major role in shaping transnational migration patterns between Turkey and Germany throughout the last century. After 1961, thousands of Gastarbeiters came to Germany in order to build up the post-war economy, forming the hitherto largest ethnic minority group. Violent ideological clashes in the 1970’s or oppressive politics in the 90’s in Turkey resulted in numerous, mostly leftist and Kurdish asylum seekers coming to Germany. Today, a new wave of migrants from Turkey are settling mainly in Berlin. These journalists, artists, academics and other young professionals are escaping ongoing persecution and seeking for a better future. In his films, Çağdaş Erdoğan investigates a diverse selection of backgrounds and stories of migration from Turkey to Germany and brings to light counter-narratives against dominant stereotypes.

Çağdaş Erdoğan is a photographer and artist born in 1992 in Eastern Turkey. As a photojournalist, his work focuses on minorities in the Middle East. His works have been  published in world-leading newspapers and magazines like the New York Times, Stern, The British Journal of Photography, The Times, The Guardian, İz Magazine and many others. He was selected among the ‘Ones to Watch in 2017’ by The British Journal of Photography. His first photobook titled Control was published Akina Books. He works with the video collective 140journos. He has held a fellowship at bi’bak since October 2019.
