In  February, and June  2008 , I 've worked in Holstebro, in Denmark . In this project I ve been collaborated 3 schools.: Norrelandsskolen,Jorgens Skole, Birkelungskolen.
I went 2 times to Denmark and worked with young Dannish People who immigrated from
different Countries.Before I ve started Odin Thetret realised all the necessary meeetings with the president of the Turkish Community, Kurdish Community, directors of the schools and some teachers.
I ve explained them my project and showed my previous works which I did in different years in different cities. I explained  them clearly to  percept the concept and during the project, anything will be risk  these youngs culture and the way of their living, and also the same for Denmark.
So than I ve started. My asistant Gul , helped me to contact directly with their common
language .
Because these youngs would be express themselves easily in their own language as Dannish.
I communicate with them in English, so I wanted them to express them selves through drawings, paintings, poets or some colums tha they have collected from the newspapers.
The first days were always went on , how to express our selves? To questionning : Who are we ? What we dream? What we are struggling for? Where the reality lay for us?

I told them to express themselves   but not using pornografy , violence , supporting wars., and attacking one nations., provoking terror.These all should be out of our aim.. 

And I also told them , I will compile some sentences from the lyrics that they have written.
Because this should be the voice  of many of them , not only one or 3 persons.
I could compile and gether them the way which represents strongly their existence in the world.
So they agreed and we ve started,.





        Lyric

See the whole, out from a round circle, a format, a paralel
The things we stare at, and believe,
But know never whether it's truth
See the countries of the world, fighting hardest against their enemy
War against war, citizen against citizen, totally forgotten, who it stood for.

Why should we kill, why should we go to war.
Is there noone who can feel the pain inside.
see more lineage trees die after each other
The last two that always survive, are an innocent mother with her son
The red blood dried around in their land
Where brothers and sisters, their origins came from, damn it.
Is there no one who can see, or know what is happening.
Noone that can help, just stand and look at what you are seeing

2.

The only thing that i am looking for, is a mother who can tell me.
Tell me, why I came to the world, and who created me.
Was born on two legs, created by a mighty god, and i was the one who was given the luck.
I grew up in my own culture and community, but ended up in the same place.
A fucking life, since i was created, saw lots of people killed.

Why should we kill, why should we go to war.
Is there noone who can feel the pain inside.
see more lineage trees die after each other
The last two that always survive, are an innocent mother with her son
The red blood dried around in their land.



During the workshop I used 3 cameras. 1st camera  was staible, the 2nd was camera
 focusing in different edge of the space, 3rd camera was in my hand.. and sometimes,
if they wanted to film and interview with eachother, they used the 3rd camera.
After the 4 th day , we started to on lyrics.the 6 th day we started to excercise to read the
lyric in a rap mode.

In Denmark , the musician didn't go to Denmark , I brought him all the selected sequences
of the lyric and he started to compose the lyric and merge the lyrics and the recorded
songs with his composed songs.It was a very hard time for us, we had 1,5 months before
the presentation but it was still very hard.

I prefer to show this music video in the supermarkets, big molls, some fashion shops like
Topshop... in some Banks and as well in a bank and a Library of Holstebro.
Because  Holstebro  is a small town and  there was any proper Center for  Contemporary Art.
And  this was a project to realise to make these youngs visible so... Ive decided to show it
every possible places in Holstebro.
