Hepsev’s solo exhibit on view
Seda Hepsev is starting her fourth solo exhibition at x-ist tomorrow. “Disguise,” which runs through Feb. 23, aims to question military service, which is seen as a mandatory rite of passage in attaining manhood in Turkey – much like male circumcision and an initial sexual experience.
The abundance of signs that read “every kind of kid’s military clothing up to the age of 10 is available” and the pride that the parents of such children display are all part and parcel of militarist culture, according to the artist.
Address: Abdi İpekci Cad., Kaşıkçıoğlu Apt. No. 42, Nişantaşı, Şişli
