How To Work Together: Ahmet Ogut
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.
The first solo exhibition in a UK public institution by the prolific collaborative artist, Ahmet Öğüt.
Working with a variety of collaborators is what Kurdish artist Ahmet Öğüt does best. For ‘Happy Together: Collaborators Collaborating’, the 34-year old Istanbul, Amsterdam and Berlin-based artist brings together ten people of varying professions including an auctioneer, a firefighter, a hairdresser, a lip reader and a stuntman to recount their experiences of working with Öğüt on previous projects. Their stories will be recounted at a one-night public discussion at the gallery in a fabricated TV Studio. The documentation will then be broadcast in the installation forming both a retrospective of Öğüt’s past works and a reflection on their participation.
