Solution with String/İp’le Çözüm

Ahmet Öğüt (2007)


Poster featuring extract from the book Today in History/Tarihte Bugün, published by Book Works and Platform Garanti.

Parodying the format of a regular newspaper column, Today in History/Tarihte Bugün presents a series of drawings and paraphrased stories, extracted from Turkish newspapers from the last four decades. The news stories are sometimes poetic, sometimes overtly political, and sometimes strangely surreal. Dislocated from their original context and presented as an artist’s impression, the work reveals a changing society, and questions what we perceive to be news and the construction of truth, fiction and history.
