Hasan Piker Interview
Where is “home” to you? *
Home for me could be anywhere on the planet. I’ve called many places my home. Currently, it’s Los Angeles. But I’ve lived and loved Istanbul, Miami, and New York.
Is it important to have a “home”? *
Absolutely. Home is where you find comfort, a place where you know all the best kebab joints. Home to me is when I walk into a restaurant or club and know the people working there. A sense of family outside of inheritance.
What are your parents’ nationality/ culture – did they seek to pass this on to you? *
My parents are both Turkish. I grew up in Turkish culture. My father is definitely a staunch capitalist and somewhat conservative by American standard but absolutely a progressive by Turkish standards. My mother, on the other hand, is an art historian feminist one of the most progressive people you’ll ever meet. While my parents brought me up with Turkish culture, they were very open-minded about my exploration.
What culture would you give your child/ raise your child in? *
Globalism. I wonder if that’s scary to folks. Probably not to readers of this publication.
Is it important to have a sense of inherited cultural identity? *
Yes. Rooting your ideals in one culture can have its benefits. For example, my take on the necessity of social programs comes from the communal aspect of middle eastern culture.
Where do you get/ learn your culture? *
The internet now. Lol.
What’s the best way to exposure yourself to another culture? *
Live in it. But the second-best thing would be to live in its art. I was heavily exposed to western culture, specifically American culture because I was drawn to it at an early age. I found myself bootlegging American TV shows and movies (one that comes to mind) How I Met Your Mother, I loved reading American literature.
Is it important to feel like you “belong” somewhere? *
Absolutely. But it’s up to us create that feeling of belonging.
