Love, Deutschmarks and Death followed by Q&A
We are very pleased that Cem Kaya will be our guest on 10 September to present and discuss his film Liebe, Deutschmarks and Death (Aşk, Mark ve Ölüm). The film premiered at this year's Berlinale and has since been shown and celebrated at numerous festivals.
The German Federal Republic’s 1961 recruitment agreement with Turkey not only brought “guest workers” to Germany but also their music. Cem Kaya’s dense documentary film essay is a tutorial in Turkish-German recent history that tells a tale of assembly line jobs, homesickness and family reunification, the bazaar in the elevated railway station at Berlin’s Bülowstraße, xenophobia and racism, the wistful songs of the early years and the hip-hop of the post-reunification period. These are the stories shared by musicians beginning with Metin Türköz and Yüksel Özkasap, to the psychedelic Derdiyoklar and the chart-topping rapper Muhabbet. Their music has evolved a long way from that of German bands and has always developed out of the Turkish community and its desires. This is the world of Radio Yilmaz, various music cassette labels, protest rocker Cem Karaca’s German exile, and wedding bands that also sing in Kurdish and Arabic to meet the demands of the market. Extensive archival research and an interest in Turkish popular culture are recurring themes in Cem Kaya’s work. With Love, Deutschmarks and Death, he has created a rhythmic and vividly narrated cinematic encyclopaedia of Turkish music in Germany.
