Under the titles »Agentur Ausländerrauş [ˈaʊ̯sˌlɛndɐʁaʊ̯ʃ"]« and »Anatolpolitan«, the literary, cultural scientist and author Nesrin Tanç dedicates herself to the work of literati who emigrated from Turkey, Anatolia or Mesopotamia to Germany, especially to the Ruhr region, in the 1970s-90s. In her lecture-performance »Akkordarbeit im halbverbrannten Wald«, Nesrin Tanç collages her scholarly and poetic texts into a polyphonic narrative that traces the blind spots in the literary and cultural history of the Federal Republic from the 1960s onwards.
Starting from a search for her »own construction history«, Nesrin Tanç researches the complex history of entanglements and traces left behind by so-called immigrants from Turkey. In doing so, she inquires into the aspects of »invisibility«, the rectification of representations and the lack of archiving of this cultural heritage.
Nesrin Tanç, born in Duisburg in 1977, studied German and Turkish language and literature in Essen, as well as psychology. She commutes between Istanbul and Germany, works as a consultant and project manager for various clients between science and art and is the initiator of numerous artistic interventions.
