This selection of books offers an introduction to the broader context of Köken Ergun’s Young Turks.
The issues raised by the exhibition are not limited to the particular story and localities explored in the project, but instead form part of the global information field, which shapes our ideas about the world.
This selection includes contemporary publications in history, sociology, anthropology, cultural theory, religion, and political science. The works discuss the most pressing issues of our time, including forms of postcolonial relations, the new faces of nationalism, geopolitics of education in a globalized world, migration, multiculturalism, the new distribution of labor and geoeconomic hierarchies, political design of identities, 21st century ethnic conflicts, and the role of religion in contemporary life.
A wider selection of books prepared by the artist and the curator are available at Garage Library.
