Enduring Turkey is a compilation of live art documentation and performance videos from Turkey and its diaspora. Focusing specifically on endurance performances, the programme will bring together examples from the pioneers of performance art with its latest incarnations, which refer to the conditions that trans, queer and feminists endure in the current political climate of Turkey. The screening will be preceded by the curators’ introductory talk and followed by a Q&A session with the participation of some of the artists.
This programme is part of a wider series of events called Turkish Delight which will take place between 17-23 March. Turkish Delight is curated by Queer Art Projects in partnership with CUNTemporary and supported by the Mountain of Arts Research, Goldsmiths College; Live Art Development Agency (LADA) and Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club (BGWMC).
