Within the series "You Want Kilims, But I Do Films" — Art and Culture in Turkey Artist talk and presentation with Mirkan Deniz.
The political and societal upheaval in Turkey has significantly changed the working situation of people engaged in the cultural sector. In response, the Akademie der Künste is presenting a new event series “You Want Kilims, But I Do Films”, (quoting Kurdish born film director Atif Yilmaz) which artists, writers, journalists and scholars will provide insight into their current practice and report on the working conditions prevailing in Turkey.
On 14 September, the Zurich based artist Mirkan Deniz presents two artistic actions based on the historical-political conditions of the Kurds and their current living situation in Turkey.
