Monday, 6 November 2017, 7 PM: Lecture by Ahmet Öğüt in the RCU Studio, Amsterdam entitled "short-term, long-term, life-time".
Ahmet Öğüt will talk about a selection of his early works up until the present day, some of them are stolen, censored, attacked or appropriated, as well as he will give an introduction into his overall practice from interventions to long term projects. The work of Ahmet Öğüt is found on the street, on stage, in lecture halls, in the museum or through films. Working across media, the Kurdish artist transforms different histories or common narratives with a lightness of touch, often using humour. Similarly, his involvement in long-term projects and commitment to collaborative working processes, often outside the spheres of art, show an awareness of art’s ability to permeate and affect different institutional, social and political structures.
