The group exhibition “ğ – the soft g” at Schwules Museum* brings together works that follow artistic migration in various directions and explore the transcultural exchange of LGBTIQ* people between Turkey and Germany, Berlin and Istanbul for the first time in Germany. This Berlin queer migrant state of mind is illustrated by Emre Busse and Aykan Safoğlu by the Turkish letter ğ, or “the soft g” in English. Busse and Safoğlu are from Istanbul, both interested in queer migration, marginalized sexual identities and body politics in their artistic and curatorial practices.
„ğ – das weiche g“ is supported by unterstützt vom Regierenden Bürgermeister von Berlin – Senatskanzlei – Kulturelle Angelegenheiten.
The press photos can be used exclusively to report on the exhibition „ğ – das weiche g – Queere Formen migrieren“, credits included.
