This project chases a woman who had neither a very long nor a very deep life. Nazifya Akarsu, died at the age of 35, and left 8 children behind. Her still-living 5 children don’t have much memory about her, and she couldn’t leave too much behind. The only information about her is as following: She is the daughter of a migrant family coming from Kosovo to Turkey in 1923. She had a life in poverty. She never learned Turkish. She never needed it. She passed all her life at home with her children. In regard of the socio-cultural structure in her neighbourhood, she was oppressed by her entourage and her husband.
