The world of Turkish international schools
The impact of Turkish international schools in more than 100 countries is the subject of this multimedia exhibition in Moscow. Köken Ergun travelled to Kenya and Indonesia, documenting the “Turkish Olympics” – an annual event where pupils compete in Turkish folklore, poetry and song competitions. The final is held in Turkey and Ergun captures a world similar to the World’s Fair, including a fairground with stands from different countries. The schools proliferated under a movement led by Fethullah Gülen to promote inter-faith dialogue, but some critics question its motives. Young Turks runs at the Garage Museum of Contemporary Art until March 26. For more information visit www.garagemca.org.
