Başak Akçakaya's M.A Thesis Exhibition


In the exhibition "Histoty Will Teach Us Nothing", the main theme of the works is the concept of “performativity” on the social and cultural construction of identity which is examined in terms of gender roles, nationalism and health. The notion of “believing” comes out as the focal point when analyzing and defining these concepts. Most of my works try to question the normalization of the slily and constantly repeated inured notions and the role they play in the formation of one's identity.
