Photo Exhibition: "Portraits of Three Generations"

DOMiD developed this photo project in collaboration with the photographer Guenay Ulutuncok in 2011. The lifesize portraits depict their subjects—Türkish migrants, their children and their grandchildren—as members of contemporary German society. In total, 17 families are portrayed. The collection consists of 51 color photos on stretched canvas. More


Photo Exhibition: "Divided Memories/Shared Memories" 
("Geteilte Erinnerungen")

This exhibition provides insight into the work and living environments of first generation migrants. The 35 photo and text panels document their path, from the first contact with the Foreign Bureau of the German Federal Labor Office to the immigration journey and life in Germany. The photo collection is particularly thought-provoking, because it relays the migrants' history from their own perspective. More


Photo Exhibition: "And so it began…"  ("So fing es an...")

This collection of 32 black-and-white photographs documents the recruitment of Turkish laborers and their daily lives in West Germany in the 1960s and 1970s. Since its creation, this exhibition has shown in over 30 different German cities. More
