Baur’s grandparents lived and died a world apart from each other: one as a German countess, the other as a farmer in the hills of Anatolien; their children were joined together through their shared commitment to communism. This work imagines the German countess taking a trip to the Turkish grandmother’s world, connecting the dots of the relationship between two very different worlds, which nonetheless share many commonalities.
