Summary note:
Gülsün Karamustafa (b. 1946) is regarded as one of the most important artists of the second half of the 20th century in Turkey, where her work has been a decisive influence on younger generations of Turkish artists since the 1990s. Karamustafa's oeuvre stretches from the mid-1970s to the present day and encompasses various media, including painting, installation, performance art, and video. Her work focuses on questions of migration, politically-induced nomadism, pop culture, feminism and gender, and often provides a critical analysis of the Western view of Middle-Eastern countries. Rendered in a variety of media, these subjects permeate all phases and forms of her artistic work and are of unmistakable relevance to current debates. The exhibition at the Hamburger Bahnhof illustrates how these themes have recurringly interlaced with each other over the decades: the approximately 110 works are deliberately displayed not according to chronology, but rather by theme, thus revealing the underlying and ongoing dialogue between them.
