Photo exhibition: Italienbilder

The photo exhibition Italienbilder shows works by Cologne-based photographers Rosanna D'Ortona, Francesca Magistro and Luisa Zanzani on the theme of their common Italian origins. Starting from their own relationships to Italy and their respective migration stories between Germany and Italy, the photographers give an insight into those images of Italy that they find in the collective memories of their families and in their own views.

The exhibition includes 26 photographs in different formats. The photo exhibition is complemented by brochures, which are available to explain the exhibition.

Memories gain in significance when they are shared with other people.

The photo exhibition provides a view of the work and life circumstances of the first generation of the so-called guest workers, in particular those from Mediterranean countries. Their paths from the first point of contact with the outposts of the German employment offices, to their arrival in Germany and then their working and day-to-day lives in Germany are documented in these striking photographs.

Photo exhibition: "So fing es an..." | "And so it Began"

In 1961 Turkey and Germany signed an agreement laying out the terms for Germany to recruit labour migrants in Turkey. Up until the ban on labour recruitment in 1973, 865,000 people came to Germany from Turkey alone.

This photo exhibit traces labour migration from Turkey, showing glimpses and snippets of people's day-to-day lives at work and at leisure: at the factory, in their living quarters, at the pub, and having picnics at the park.

People come and go – and some stay.

This photo exhibition with pictures from photographer Guenay Ulutuncok tracks the people who came to Germany and stayed. Although they had often not originally planned to settle in Germany, they held their ground and helped shape Germany's future. Ulutuncok subject matter here focuses especially on the late 1970s and 1980s.
