Gülay Gün studied History, Religion, and European Studies in Bremen, Istanbul, and Frankfurt/Oder. She started curating with an exhibition on Circassians and their exile in the 19th century, driven by her own heritage. She continued as an exhibition manager for several projects like Das Kapital or NS-Forced Labour. Chapters as a collection manager in Berlin and freelance museum consultant for diversity and change management followed. Today she works as a museum consultant for the Hamburg Ministry of Culture and Media. Her work is framed by a constant critical perspective on the issues of racial inequalities and collective memory within a post-migrant society.
