The first day will address the process of arriving in Berlin of delocalised artists and the way they lead their lives in Berlin. Which opportunities does the city offer in the here and now and which demands does it make? Art is seen as a means of migration or escape
In a panel discussion, the curator & cultural manager Çağla Ilk, the dancer Candaş Baş, Esra Akkaya, who runs the programme "Yerli Müzik" in the project space bi'bak, - and the art critic and journalist Ingo Arend will be given the floor. The discussion will be moderated by curator, cultural manager and scholar of Islam, Nil Deniz. With improvisations between classical Western and traditional Middle Eastern instruments, the HaY//mat Ensemble, founded especially for the festival, creates deep moments of encounter. Santi & Tuğçe will "berlinize" old Turkish songs from their home country through "Global Dance Floor Rhythms" and Latin American sound. The dancer Candaş Baş in her choreography reflects how her life has changed since her arrival in Berlin in 2017. The music for this is provided by Emre Okan, who has been living in Berlin for five years. Gaye Su Akyol, the only artist of the evening living in Istanbul and representing a self-confident image of women there, pairs up psychedelic electric guitars and thundering percussions with oud and Bağlama. In a dazzling finale of the evening's programme, queer activist Prens* Emrah, who has fled Turkmenistan to come - via Istanbul - to Berlin, and who is also the organiser of the monthly QueerBerg-Soli event with refugee performers*, presents oriental dance in his* very own way. DJ Ipek, known all over town, will then make the crowd dance with her Disko Anatolia Sound.
Die autobiografische Fotoausstellung von Uygar Önder Şimşek in Studio C und die Installation "Tube on black" von Melih Sarigöl und Ceren Oykut im Foyer sind ab 18 Uhr geöffnet.
