It was in October 2011 that Tarabya Cultural Academy was launched. After intense debate, in which the members of the German Bundestag played a very active role across party lines, the cornerstone was set for the success story of the Cultural Academy as a joint project of the Foreign Office and the Goethe-Institut.
Cultural exchange thrives on a variety of voices and diversity. What about artistic freedom in Turkey and Germany? How can this be promoted through residency programs such as that of Tarabya Cultural Academy? How can the mobility of artists be preserved even in times of crisis? Representatives from arts and culture in conversation about the prospects for German-Turkish cultural exchange in politically tense times.
