Emine Sevgi Özdamar’s play Perikizi (2010) is a particularly significant migration story because of its shrewd exploration of European integration, specifically in Germany. In my article I demonstrate that Perikizi’s journey highlights some structural parallels between East and West with respect to genocide, nationalism and xenophobia: the play opens up a space in which national responsibility and the relationship with cultural otherness are problematized through different aesthetic strategies.

Abstract

Emine Sevgi Özdamar’s play Perikizi (2010) is a particularly significant migration story because of its shrewd exploration of European integration, specifically in Germany. In my article I demonstrate that Perikizi’s journey highlights some structural parallels between East and West with respect to genocide, nationalism and xenophobia: the play opens up a space in which national responsibility and the relationship with cultural otherness are problematized through different aesthetic strategies.
