Turkish Biennial

Here’s another video from my friends at dmovies. They attended the Istanbul Biennial, which went on after I left Turkey last summer (boohoo, I missed it). This piece is from a Turkish artist who is taking a big risk. We take it for granted that artists can say what they want, but in Turkey, they can also pay for criticizing the State.
Click here to view a short video that introduces the biennial. Isn't my friend beautiful?
