Gentle activism. Belonging to Kurdish minority in Turkey Bucak speaks out in a very subtle and poetic way about issues of borders, displacement and identity . Since activist art is mostly represented by men we used to the straight forward bold and often bloody placard style art. However I find Bucak’s approach very moving. Being a citizen of officially democratic Kazakstan but in fact a dictatorship where any dissident or an activist would face inhumane prosecution, I am in a search of ways of expressing of my concerns. I am inspired by the art of Fatma Bucak, it’s a very feminine memorial that doesn’t strike a spectator as political but raises important issues. Although the gallery manager confirmed that they wouldn’t hold this exhibition in their Istanbul gallery.
