Migrating Spaces

Architecture and Identity in the Context of Turkish Migration

June 17, 2016 – July 31, 2016

SALT Galata, Bankalar Caddesi No. 11, Karaköy


This exhibition looks at the built environment to explore how cultural experiences can contribute to complex identities. The buildings in question are the homes built by former Turkish guest workers upon their ‘definitive return’ to Turkey. After documenting 132 cases of houses and apartments built or renovated by migrants returning to Turkey, the curator Stefanie Bürkle and her team catalogued the common elements of domestic architecture in Germany that are integrated into these buildings.

The results of their three-year research project are presented via an installation of videos, mappings and images providing insights into the lives and spaces created by returning Turkish migrants.
