Behind the Scenes: Aswat Al Raseef
Iraqi food, live performance and DJ sets this Saturday on Weserstraße
On Saturday 16th April, Oona hosts the launch party for Meri Melkonyan's book, 'The Borderline'.
Produced as part of the Freie Universität Berlin's “Mapping Diaspora; New Understandings of Space, Place, and People on the Move” the book investigates migration and diaspora experiences in Berlin.
Enriched with beautiful illustrations by Polina Parygina, 'The Borderline' details nine very individual stories from Iraqis who have made the journey to settle in Berlin. From her field research, Meri Melkonyan complied 'The Borderline' with interview excerpts centred around ideas of homeland, identity and culture, and focusing on young adults moving from Iraq to Berlin.
Featuring live music, food, DJ sets and interviews, the launch party this Saturday will also have a merch stall. Copies of The Borderline are available now at Oona, we highly recommend picking one up before they sell out.
