In a live performance event, artist Ahmet ÖÄüt presents a filmic intervention in collaboration with musician Yasemin Mori, creating four unique soundtracks that respond to a recent feature film by director Kaan Mujdeci.

Like many of ÖÄüts works, the performance deals with representation and social engagement, which in this instance reveal the fluidity of film and soundtrack as a representative media. As with earlier projects including the ongoing The Silent University, 2011-ongoing, an educational and performative resource for asylum seekers, he deals directly with socio-political issues, relevant on a global scale.

Ahmet ÖÄüt (born Diyarbakir, Turkey in 1981) is a founding member of the Silent University. Selected solo exhibitions include: Strategies for Radical Democracy, The Blackwood Gallery at University of Toronto, Canada (2014); Fahrenheit 451: Reprinted, Checkpoint Helsinki, Helsinki, Finland (2013); and Or whistle spontaneously, Delfina Foundation, London, UK (2013). Group exhibitions include: Giving Contours to Shadows, Neuer Berliner Kunstverein, Berlin, Germany (2014); Nouvelles Vagues - A History of Inspiration, Palais de Tokyo, Paris, France (2013); and Signs Taken in Wonder: Searching for Contemporary Istanbul, Austrian Museum of Applied Arts / Contemporary Art, Vienna, Austria (2013).

Please note that all films are 18+ unless otherwise stated.
