Double Feature: 1. Ahmet Öğüt: Artist at Work in Times of Crisis; 2. Philipp Misselwitz: Cities and Crise—Planing in a World of Uncertainty

October 22  @ 19:00 21:00 CEST

Ahmet Öğüt, a con­cep­tu­al artist from Turkey, works in a wide range of media, includ­ing pho­tog­ra­phy, video, and instal­la­tion to address top­ics such as cul­tur­al iden­ti­ties and polit­i­cal ide­olo­gies. He often uses humor and loose nar­ra­tive struc­tures to offer his com­men­tary on rather seri­ous and press­ing social and polit­i­cal issues. In 2009, he rep­re­sent­ed Turkey in the Pavil­ion of Turkey at the 53rd Venice Bien­nale.
