»Yeni Yeşerenler« (De)

Annett Scheffel (host), Duygu Ağal

How do you become the person you want to be, or even have to be? Duygu Ağal from Hamburg has written »Yeni Yeşerenler«, a coming-of-age story in which golden Birkenstocks and exhausting Kraut therapists have a place, as do the rejecting insignia of a world that doesn’t seem to be made for you, as well as lesbian love, a move from Hamburg to Berlin, women’s football, violence, desperation, emancipation, self-confidence, friendship and so much more. At Pop-Kultur, Duygu Ağal will read from her book, and it will sound something like this: »Derin, girl, today you will leave the house and never come back. God or Allah or whoever knows where you got those ovaries to pull this off, but I trust you. You’re smart and you’ve got an unbelievably big mouth, so somehow you’ll get through it all.«

Supported by Initiative Musik gemeinnützige Projektgesellschaft mbH with project funds from the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media (BKM) as part of Pop-Kultur Inter:national / Postmigrant Perspectives.
