nedenahmet / Metehan Özcan
"nedenahmet" was the nickname that his classmates used to call Ahmet Yıldız who used to question everything. Ahmet was murdered at 2008 (26yrsold) after coming out to his family.
Flags are to construct identities. They are to die or kill for. And they are also emblemetic of how a person may be reduced to a single identity by the society. This serie is about the invisibility of gay/lesbian identities in public space. My contribution consisted of a banner that was displayed on Yüksel Street and postcards to handed out at the bookstores nearby.
