Bengü Kocatürk-Schuster: Collecting and telling migration (hi)stories (GER)

The Dokumentationszentrum und Museum über die Migration in Deutschland (eng. Documentation Center and Museum on Migration in Germany [DOMiD]) was founded by migrants in Essen in 1990 to secure, preserve and exhibit immigrant historical heritage.

This lecture describes the founding and development phase from migrant self-organization to museum and focuses on the question of the narrative perspective: 

Who remembers? Whose history and stories are passed on? Both the collection itself and the collection practice will be presented. On the basis of sample objects, the lecture will examine associated historical narratives and the role of their lenders. It will also discuss the question of what a migration museum of the future could look like.

Bengü Kocatürk-Schuster is responsible for collection expansion and lender support at DOMiD.
