Curated by Duygu and Bengü Gün, Sounds Like Home: Longing and Comfort through Lullabies uncover how lullabies can be a source of comfort when longing for home and place, challenges it’s subliminal messaging that reproduces oppressive power structures, and affirms that culture is fluid.

Based in San Francisco and Istanbul respectively, Sounds Like Home was inspired by both of the curator’s family history with migration and their interest in music as a connecting force. Sounds Like Home not only questions how cultural memory is preserved and transmitted through simple melodic messages from childhood, but also challenges the way lullabies, family stories and fairy tales transmit gender roles and cultural norms while affirming that culture is dynamic.

By bringing together artists and researchers from around the world, Sounds Like Home: Longing and Comfort through Lullabies asks, “Is there a connection between lullabies across languages and cultures? How does the way we exchange these messages change over time?”
