This work paints apicture of new Europeans torn between two cultures and the psychological effect of the media on a migrant's cultural orientation. Christine Ogan explores the impact Turkish media has had on the diasporic community, in Amsterdam, asthey stuggle to adapt to life in the west and attempt to redefine their personal an collective identity. The Turkish population in Amsterdam have immediate and pervasive access to information and entertainment from their country of birth. This work documents how the communication media available to migrants has enabled them to maintain a connection with their ethnic culture, a psychological comfort zone that minimizes estrangement from Turkey but exacerbates the separation from Dutch public life.
