Tips and Tricks

Ahmet Öğüt - Tips and Tricks
Comprehensive monograph.
Over the years, the Turkish artist Ahmet Öğüt has been offering tips and tricks that suggest reconsidering the norms, perceiving history and the contemporary politics anew, and regenerating the social structures. Co-published with the Künstlerhaus Stuttgart, this publication, whose first steps can be traced back to Istanbul, Stuttgart, and other places the artist had traveled to for his exhibitions, reflects the educational turn Öğüt has taken over the past few years, and surveys the artist's work to date presenting it into six groups that each help define a significant aspect of his body of work—“Filmic Memory,” “ Mediated Sculpture,” “Institutional Hijack,” “History Reclaimed,” “Everyday Archaeology,” and “Long-Term Engagments.”
Born 1981 in Diyarbakir (Turkey), Ahmet Öğüt lives and works in Istanbul, Amsterdam, Berlin and Helsinki.
