They/Onlar

7 Feb 2017

If you didn't fit as a "good citizen," you were put down and insulted. So you had to hide who you were.

How does Turkey view the Other? And how by extension, do we? In her multi-screen video installation, Ipek Duben goes behind the scenes in Turkish society to provide a glimpse of her country’s ethnic, religious and gender diversity, and the everyday discrimination and resistance that it triggers. 

Projected onto large screens, personal stories reveal the lines of division within Turkish society from the subjects’ personal perspectives as religious, ethnic or sexual minorities.

Ipek Duben is an artist, author and editor whose work examines issues of alienation, identity, prejudice and migration. 

A Fabrica & Brighton Festival co-production.
