Our take

An intriguing visual manifestation of Köken Ergun’s PhD thesis on emotional bonding during ceremonies, Wedding brings together sociologically charged video material from various rituals. These lush gatherings reflect the cultural crossover between Turkish and Kurdish migrant communities in Berlin.
