For the opening of the new season 2017/18 bi’bak invites the authors of the collective Daughters and Sons of Gastarbeiters for a performative reading. After the performance, join us for Rakı and a dance with a DJ-Set by Çerikunda (Istanbul/Berlin)

Daughters and Sons of Gastarbeiters is an open literary project by authors from Berlin, whose parents came to Germany from the villages of Anatolia, Southern Europe, South Korea and the Balkans. As “Gastarbeiter” (guest workers), their mothers and fathers were to support the economic miracle. The daughters and sons are now looking back: in performative readings, they tell their personal stories and revive them with pictures.

With readings by: Ok Hee Jeong, Roraria Chirico, Zoran Terzic, Çiçek Bacık and Serkan Deniz.

The event takes place in the frame of BERLIN ART WEEK.
