Ayhan and me by belit sağ

Ayhan and me is an incisive examination of the power of images, the roles and responsibilities of representation, and sanctioned history-making. It takes the story of Ayhan Çarkın as an example: a former death squad member of the Turkish police who in 2011 publicly confessed his involvement in the murder of more than 1,000 Kurdish people during the 1990s. Additionally, belit sağ’s video offers a look at the charged relationship between art and state control by discussing its own production in the context of the Post-Peace exhibition, curated by Katia Krupennikova, at Akbank Sanat in Istanbul, which was censored and canceled a few days before the opening.
