A nation that seeks to reinvent itself from old ruins and that is devouring itself from within. In the reading and following discussion, Nurcan Baysal dares to reconstruct life in the terror of the Diyarbakir bombings and Engin Önder analyses the autocrat Erdogan’s rhetoric and network of power. The texts were created in the context of the 60pages Longform Workshop in March 2017 in Istanbul in cooperation with Anadolu Kültür and the Federal Foreign Office.
