Who the f*** is Halil Altindere?
& collect
Since the mid-late 1990 artist Halil Altindere played with the notions of social and individual idiosyncracies existing between traditional and globalised societies through humour and irony. From the moment he presented his witty sculpture series with repurposed Marlborough cigarette packages at Manifesta 4 in 2002 in Frankfurt, he has been investigating the deep-seating power system that dominates his native country and how it is manifested in every day culture. As an artist, curator and publisher, Altindere is one of the most important protagonists in the contemporary art scene in Turkey today. The artist lives and works in Istanbul.

In 2015 he will be a member of the International Short Film Jury of Berlinale - the 65th Berlin Film Festival (Opening February 5th, 2015). In the exhibition "Who the f*ck is Halil Altindere?" the Kunstpalais presents photographs, sculptures, objects and video works by Halil Altindere and with that offers a comprehensive insight into the artist’s work.
