Jedan Turčin jednako ceo svet, 1998 (detalj)
One Turk Equals the World, 1998 (detail)


Born in 1971 in Mardin, Turkey, lives and works in Istanbul

One Turk Equals the World, 1998 (detail)

In his work One Turk Equals the World, Halil Altındere combines national devotional objects of Turkey – the wolf, a portrait of Kemal Ataturk and the symbols of the national flag – with a quotation by the founder of the Republic: “One Turk equals the World.” Mythology, mystification and chauvinism are intertwined in this installation, and at the same time it raises questions concerning historical continuity and variations in the self-portrayal of the state.

Jedan Turčin jednako ceo svet, 1998 (detalj)

U svom radu Jedan Turčin jednako ceo svet Halil Altindere kombinuje nacionalna obeležja Turske – vuka, portret Kemala Ataturka i simbole nacionalne zastave – sa citatom osnivača Republike: „Jedan Turčin jednako ceo svet”. Mitologija, mistifikacija i šovinizam prepliću se u ovoj instalaciji, a istovremeno se otvaraju pitanja koja se tiču istorijskog kontinuiteta i razlika u načinima na koje država samu sebe vidi i opisuje.
