Reception to follow

The final public event of Selim Özdoğan’s residency is scheduled for Monday, December 5 at 5:30 pm. On this evening, Selim will read from his most recent novel, Wieso Heimat, ich wohne zur Miete? The novel details unlikely protagonist Krishna Mustafa’s search for his roots in Istanbul. At once humorous, pointed, and poetic, this novel engages with a tradition of satire in Turkish literature. At the same time, it offers an indirect reflection on identity politics in Germany and provides a thoughtful commentary on the political situation in Turkey following the Gezi Park protests.
