Gökhan Mura will analyse the material and visual culture of migration through examples from the intersecting biographies of Turkish labor migrants in Europe and the things they have encountered, used, appropriated and transferred to Turkey to be used or as gifts. Through the medium of the designed objects, and through using a design perspective and vocabulary Mura intends to interpret the impact of Turkish labor migration on the visual and material culture of the migrated countries as well as Turkey through the conceptual framework of the value shift and the changing reception of designed objects. “Objective” perspective provides new tools of interpretation in understanding the economic, social and historical impact of migration on the members of the transnational societies from an individual and an “objective” account, through an alternative medium of narrative.
