Representation of the Turkish immigrant in cultural products in Germany
MetadataShow full item record
This study aims to analyze the Turkish immigrant’s image in cultural productions (films, television serials, novels and music products) in Germany, in which Turkish immigrants are reflected as the main actors of the others story or producing their own history via these cultural products. This study also presents different approaches and inclinations of Turkish first and third generation cultural producers in Germany to the existing intercultural area. One of the questions which are problemitized here is how the representations in the cultural productions reproduce and exercise the responds of host and guest culture. Do the actors who represent the immigrant subject position on the cultural field serve to museumisate the discourse or contribute to new hybrid emancipation? This study also intends to understand everyday codes and spatial practices which play a major role in Turkish- German common life. Put another way, what makes “us” different from “our” “other”? In which ways are we creating “our other”?
