Born in 1984 in Diyarbakir, Şahin Kürküt came to the University of Bonn to study philosophy. In 2019, he successfully completed his master's degree there with a focus on philosophy of language. Accompanying his studies, he completed university training as a Kurdish reader - the basis for his more than seven years of work as a lecturer and translator/interpreter for the Kurdish language. In the summer of 2021, he received a grant from the German Translator Fund to translate a theater textbook. Later, he became part of the translation project Trans|Droste of the Annette von Droste zu Hülshoff Foundation and Burg Hülshoff - Center for Literature.
His work focuses on translation: literary works, including prose, poetry, and plays, as well as editorial translations in the context of online and offline media.Events with Şahin Kürküt
