I was visiting Cologne for the weekend, and visiting Nil Yalter’s exhibition was highly recommended by a friend of mine living in the city. The welcoming statement explains simply her enthusiasm: “The Exile Is A Hard Job”; a quote from Nâzım Hikmet—the famous poet born in Turkey and died in exile, in Moscow.
What a pleasure to have met all these inspiring women and heard their fascinating memory projects underscoring the existence of women’s history! Many thanks to İstanbul Kadın Müzesi – Women’s Museum Istanbul for this successful international organization and to Nayat for her mind-opening introduction talk. In #FeministPedagody we trust. Our talk is now available on YouTube.
At CAMOC Workshop, I presented the Federal German Migrant Women Association’s Bibliothek der Generationen project and now it’s available on YouTube.
