About

An area in current discourse about migration and integration that up until now has been given little attention is the migration of spaces. When people move, so do spaces, along with images, cultural practices and lifestyles. Using the example of ‘Almancı’ houses, built by former Turkish guest workers who return to Turkey, Stefanie Bürkle has investigated the complex and conflicting relationships between German-Turkish identity and built space. The results of the three-year research project, presented as an installation of videos, mappings, images and collages, provides fascinating and surprising insights into the lives and spaces created by Turkish migrants when they return.
