Women in Kazakh Art


An exhibition entitled "Women in Kazakh Art," featuring the textile pictures by Kazakh artist Batima Zaurberkova, has been opened in Cologne, Germany.

The exhibition, organized by Yunus Emre Institute's Cologne branch with support from Eifel and More companies from Germany and the consulate general of the Republic of Kazakhstan in Frankfurt, showcased 35 works of art by the artist.

Yılmaz Bulut, the director of Yunus Emre Institute's Cologne branch, delivered a keynote speech during the opening ceremony of the exhibition. He stated that in Germany, the Institute represented not only Turkey, but also the Turkic world. "Yunus Emre Institute promotes Turkish culture all around the world, and it opens its doors fully for the artists from sister Turkic republics as well," he said.

During the event, the significance of promoting the ancient fraternity of Turkish and Kazakh peoples in Europe was stressed, and Kazakh musician Tursynchan Karakozheva gave a mini concert of Kazakh folk songs with kopuz, also known as the Kazakh kemençe.

The exhibition will be open to visitors between 10:00 and 18:00 on weekdays until February 12.
