"You Want Kilims, But I Do Films"
Art and Culture in Turkey

Lecture and Discussion

The need for theatre has always been great when under political pressure. Direct artistic expression in real time creates spaces for discourse both on and off the stage – so it is no wonder that theatre in Turkey is also increasingly in the spotlight at present. In short lectures and discussions, cultural scientist Mahir Namur (Istanbul/Vienna) and theatre-maker and scholar Ata Unal (Istanbul/Brussels) talk about freedom and responsibility in art and the development of the performing arts in Turkey since the 1990s.
