Medeas Daughters*
(Medeas Töchter*)

A digital tour through an isolated world

MEDEAS DAUGHTERS*, these are young women* whose visibility and influence on society are pushed into the background because of their origin, skin color, sexual orientation or political views. Their voices, faces, bodies and thoughts should not be heard or seen. Politics is made on their backs, but they are not part of it.


Since September 2019 we have been working on the Greek myth of Medea and writing our own Medea stories together with rapper Esra Özmen, slam poet Yasmo and author Tunay Önder. The result is a manifesto that brings to the surface stories of girls* and young women* that are still unheard. It is about a future in which these young women* will guide and lead the city. A vision that becomes reality.

For our premiere date on June 15, 2020, we are currently constantly looking for new ways of expressing ourselves legally and in a way that is acceptable to health.

MEDEAS DAUGHTERS* are sending videos, texts and sound recordings from their current places of residence, they dance, roar, perform, speak. We publish the collected material on our homepage
