Curators Alice Sharp, Peter Cross and Levent Calikoglu and exhibition organiser Denizhan Ozer.


Inspired by the celebrated Turkish writer and political figure Nazim Hikmet's book of poems Journeys With No Return, this project explores reflections of Turkish migration on contemporary art.


Twelve artists from Germany, Great Britain and Turkey uncover themes around Turkish migration over the last 50 years. Using popular music, rap, cinematic conventions, comics, anthropology and documentary they exploit archive images, cultural stereotypes and information systems. The artists work stretches from video, film, photography, drawing to installation and they reach out with methods of communication that echo mainstream and popular cultural forms.


A conference addressing the themes of the exhibition, how culture is transformed through migration and the influence of Turkish migration on contemporary practitioners, will take place at the Goethe-Institut, 19 February 2010 (9.30-5.30 pm). Chaired by Edgar Schmitz (Goldsmith College, London) and Lisa Le Feuvre (Writer and Curator) and including speakers Irit Rogoff, Professor of Visual Culture at Goldsmiths College, a theorist, curator and organiser, Artist Adam Chodzko and Dr. Mark Nash, Head of Department for Curating Contemporary Art, Royal College of Art.
