The Berlinische Galerie is showing Pınar Öğrenci’s film “Aşît / The Avalanche” (2022, 60 min.), produced for documenta fifteen. To make „Aşît“, Öğrenci returned to her father’s hometown Müküs (Bahçesaray in Turkish) in the region of Van, near the border between Türkiye and Iran. Öğrenci’s film shows traces of the different cultures that once lived in Müküs before parts of the population were murdered, displaced or forced to assimilate.
