From the Bosporus to the Spree: since 2012, the Tarabya Cultural Academy has granted artists living in Germany four-to-eight-month-long residencies in Turkey where they can live, work and connect with the Turkish cultural scene. For the first time, scholarship holders from the previous year are presenting their work in Germany. With the title “Studio Bosporus”, a programme of exhibitions, films, literature, performance, music and discussions with partners and artists awaits visitors of the Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart – Berlin. Alongside the artistic programme – which features works from every discipline – there is also a panel discussion about German-Turkish cultural issues with speakers including Asena Günal, Executive Director of the not-for-profit cultural institution Anadolu Kültür, Johannes Ebert, Secretary General of the Goethe Institute, and theatre-maker Tuğsal Moğul, whose German-Turkish coproduction about the NSU affair, “Auch Deutsche unter den Opfern” (“There Were Also Germans Among the Victims”) created a big stir both nationally and internationally.
