From Kuzorra to Özil

Since Juni 2013

Football and migration belong together. Hardly anywhere else is the phenomenon of migration as visible as on the pitch. For that reason, DOMiD is presently working together with exhibition organizers Daniel Huhn and Stefan Metzger, as well as the LWL Industrial Museum Zeche Hannover in Bochum, to develop an exhibition on the topic "Football and Migration." The exhibition will focus on the Ruhr region. The working title "From Kuzorra to Özil" ("Von Kuzorra bis Özil") highlights two prominent players with migration backgrounds, who previously played for FC Schalke 04 in Gelsenkirchen. The exhibition will be shown in the Zeche Hannover in Bochum in the summer of 2015.
