NarPhotos – Mekân: Stories of Syrian Refugees
26/01/2017 @ 11:00 - 12/03/2017 @ 17:00
26 January – 12 March 2017
Twelve photographers from NarPhotos Collective, took photos in Syria, Iraq, Turkey, Greece and Germany since the beginning of the civil war in 2011, and turned them into features which trace different themes relating to Syrian refugees. The exhibition includes 54 photographs compiled from those photo stories.
Through each photo we witness the lives of civilians who are exposed to the most severe consequences of the crisis; to their dangerous journeys, time in refugee camps and struggles in big cities, to the families who try to stay together, to young people and children.
The word “Mekân” in the title, is a Turkish word of Arabic origin which is frequently used and it translates as “space of existence, place”. Its connotative meanings also include “home, locale”. Human mobility which increases with the escalating violence particularly in the Middle East, makes us rethink all the senses and associations of this word.
Considered as the biggest migration wave since the Second World War, the strenuous journeys of Syrian civilians render the questioning of all the human made borders necessary in order to be able to make a different world possible. “Mekân” includes the visual testimonies of NarPhotos photographers who wish to contribute to this process of questioning.
This is the first exhibition of the project and is kindly supported by Heinrich Böll Stiftung Turkey.
