Followed by a talk with Persefoni Myrtsou

Maltepe Gelinleri | The Brides of Maltepe

The screening will be followed by an artist talk and a discussion with Persefoni Myrtsou on the topic of being a Greek immigrant in Turkey.

Maltepe Gelinleri | The Brides of Maltepe explores the verbal transcriptions of relationships and confessions from four families in Greece, Turkey and Germany. In a genealogically tense Greek-Turkish environment, Eva Giannakopoulou and Persefoni Myrtsou share their lives between these three countries. As observers and circumstantial protagonists making use of rigorous methodology, they attempt an introspective process, examining the stereotypical and prevailing structures of transnational love and maverick forms of partnership.

Persefoni Myrtsou was born in Thessaloniki and is a practising visual artist and cultural anthropologist. She studied Fine Arts at Glasgow School of Art and later at the Institute for Art in Context at the UdK Berlin. Persefoni has exhibited and performed in multiple settings. She currently lives and works in Istanbul and regularly travels to Berlin and Thessaloniki.
