40 Duke Street
This is a free exhibition by Ipek Duben which is part of the Brighton festival at Fabrica until 29th May
Ipek Duben’s multi-screen video installation focuses on how Turkish society views They or the Other. In Turkey They covers many ethnic and religious groups: Kurds, Alevis, Armenians, Jews, Rum (Greek) and Romanis. They also refers to LGBT people, women, covered women, and women subjected to domestic violence.
Through these personal testimonies we hear their personal histories, attitudes and prejudices concerning each other. In doing so Ipek Duben invites us to examine ourselves in our context: to listen; to understand; to be generous to rather than be threatened by The Other.
