DESCRIPTION

Garage Museum of Contemporary Art is pleased to invite GARAGE cardholders to a special preview of Köken Ergun’s Young Turks.

Cardholders have the chance to see the exhibition one day before the public opening.
Comprising a two-channel video and immersive installation, the exhibition explores the impact of Turkish international schools on more than 100 countries around the world. Using an intimate documentary style, Ergun shot footage during his research in Kenya and Indonesia.

Continuing Ergun’s long-term focus on globalization and the importance of education in neocolonial theory, Young Turks is a research project that prioritizes historical parallels between the Turkish Olympics and World’s Fairs, which represent countries’ aspirations for cultural exchange.

Young Turks was initiated in 2013 and developed by Garage Museum of Contemporary Art (Moscow) and Protocinema (Istanbul and New York).
