Artist Talk: Ming Wong & Aykan Safoğlu
Participant artists of ğ - soft g - queer forms migrate Ming Wong and Aykan Safoğlu will be discussing their artistic practices and collaborations.
Since 2010, Berlin based Ming Wong and Aykan Safoglu have deepened their artistic friendship and creative collaboration as they travelled together from Kreuzberg 36 to the backstreets of Istanbul, reflecting on the echo of bygone “gazino” night-clubs and the after-image of abandoned cinemas.
Come and share their heart-to-heart exchange of gossip, analysis and questioning of the queer legacy of Turkish cinema and popular culture on memory, belonging and identity, through their meanderings along the edges of artistic practice, ethics, and common grounds informed by their queer artistic migration along the frontiers between Europe and Asia.
This event is part of the side event program of "ğ- soft g - queer forms migrate"
*This side event will be in English
“ğ – the soft g” is supported by the Governing Mayor of Berlin – Senatskanzlei – Kulturelle Angelegenheiten.
