    Seven Turkish Curators Speak about New Media
    25 min. Digital video
    2004


    During 2003 and 2004, I interviewed Turkish curators and researched the situation of new media in Turkey. All agreed that digital videoing is the most predominantly used new technique. Also, they agreed that many Turkish artists use some form of documentation in their work. Starting from these assumptions, I used as art material portions of the footage of curators speaking. While the curators speak about the Turkish artist’s tendency to document, I am performing the act by documenting the curators. This is a work of art because I see all art works as a particular type of document.
