la langue kurde en diaspora

[En] Kurdî is a support for unexpected reflection on Graphic design and Kurdish language.

In Kurdistan, the stateless status of the Kurds does not make it possible for the language to be standardized or recognized, thus jeopardising its transmission. Yet, it plays a dynamic role in the maintenance of its culture and it is an identity element for the new generation, born far from its roots.

[Fr] Kurdî est un support de réflexion inattendue sur le graphisme et la langue kurde.

Au Kurdistan, le statut d'apatride des Kurdes ne permet pas à la langue d’être standardisée ou reconnue, mettant ainsi en péril sa transmission. Pourtant, elle joue un rôle dynamique dans le maintien de sa culture et un élément identitaire pour la nouvelle génération, née loin de ses racines.
