GAM Palermo hosts a solo exhibition by Fatma Bucak, organised by Fondazione Merz in collaboration with Festival delle Letterature Migranti.
Fatma Bucak’s work addresses themes such as political and gender identity, censorship, repression, expropriation, migration and state violence, that are of great contemporary pertinence, which the artist develops through installations, performances, photographs, videos and sound environments. Her belonging to the Kurdish minority is one of the elements that continues to inform her practice.
The exhibition, featuring site-specific installations, performance, sound, video, sculpture and photographs – many of which have been specially commissioned for the Fondazione Merz – continue the above themes.
