Artist Interview: Hseyin Bahri Alptekin


Flash must be enabled to see the video player.

Trained in art and philosophy, Hseyin Bahri Alptekin explores the narrow gap between the real and its reproduction, local realities and global fantasies, signifiers and signified, ideas and language, history and mythologies. He develops critical works that borrow the structure of language in order to analyze the phenomena of perception and the diffusion of knowledge.

Alptekin was featured in the Walker Art Center’s exhibition How Latitudes Become Forms: Art in a Global Age.
