Necla Rüzgar | »My Name Was Written On Every Page«

Necla Rüzgar holds the publication on the special exhibition in her hands.

The accompanying publication comprises a cross-section of highly expressive works consisting of paintings and drawings in which Rüzgar turns time and again to myths and legends to address the cultural and social conditions of being a woman in a misogynistic environment.

The publication available in German, Turkish, and English is complemented by three introductory essays on the artist’s work, written by the curator Kevser Güler, the historian Christina Soose, and the art historian Peter Stohler.
