Zafer Şenocak: Exiles in Istanbul
Fri, June 04, 2004 8 pm CEST, Reading
ZKM has created Çay Salonu for the literary and musical supporting program accompanying the exhibition Call me ISTANBUL ist mein Name. Çay Salonu will be open throughout the exhibition. In this literary musical tea salon, children, teens, and adults will find extensive literature from Turkish and German authors: fairytales, youth literature, popular nonfiction books, travel guides, poetry, and prose. Çay Salonu, decorated with Turkish carpets, antique kelims and copperwares, is a place for relaxation, exchange, and cultural encounters.

Literary - Musical tea salon for adults
When authors from Turkey, who have lived in Germany for years, are honored with the highest German literature and film prizes for their essays, poems and novels, their screenplays and films, then they are not just token Turks who let us pat each other on the back and confirm the success of integration. They have long belonged to a self confident literary scene that it is so productive and prolific precisely because it has never bowed down to some postulated German leitkultur.
