The Lullaby Project | Virtual Gallery

Based in San Francisco and Istanbul respectively, curators Duygu and Bengü Gün were inspired by their family history with migration and interest in music as a connecting force. Sounds Like Home: Longing and Comfort through Lullabies 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?”
