Bedri Baykam to open exhibit in Berlin’s Galeri Kuchling
The exhibition shares the same title as one of Baykam’s works dating back to 1987 in the Istanbul Modern collection.
The exhibition presents a cross-section of Baykam’s pictorial work from 2007 until today. In large format pastel paintings, small works on paper, and so-called 4D multimedia works, Baykam intertwines various elements of Turkish and Western culture, all with a spark of irony.
Meanwhile, the book “Bedri Baykam as Seen by Critics” will be published for the first time internationally.
The 556-page book includes 62 articles written by leading critics from around the world and was first published in Turkish last year by the Piramid Publishing House.
“I Wish I Had a Harem” will continue through Dec. 15.
