Şimdi heißt jetzt—Momentaufnahmen aus Istanbul. Eine Sammlung

Author: Julia Kahl

“The first thing a big city does to us is sneak into their language, and if we don’t curse, the curse will fall on our cells.” Şimdi heißt jetzt (”Şimdi means now”)  is a collection of personal essays. Fifteen authors tell of their encounters, adventures, and crises in Istanbul—lively, honest, humorous, and sometimes melancholic.

The interplay of atmospheric illustrations and background information on everyday Turkish culture creates a complex picture of this city in which so many cultural influences, social ideas and individual dreams mix together.

Şimdi heißt jetzt is intended to make encounters possible. Encounter with new impressions and personal perspectives that arouse curiosity and create connections between Turkey and Germany.

We are far away from each other. We are close to each other. And we care about each other.
