Eagles & Doves (Nasan Tur)

17-08-2018 - 28-10-2018

Kunsthalle Bratislava, Bratislava, Slovakia

The work ‘Once upon a time’ by Nasan Tur is currently on view at the group exhibition Eagles & Doves at Kunsthalle Bratislava. In September/October 2016 this work has been shown at Deweer Gallery.
Concept exhibition: What is the form of national identity today? What influence do various symbols exert upon it? Can we positively identify with a nation without nationalistic and xenophobic overlays? The exhibition Eagles & Doves presents works by contemporary Slovak and German artists who respond to these difficult questions with broad perspective, criticism and humour, in a playful and open manner. Contemporary art can be actually a medium of intercultural communication: the encounter, not the clash, of cultures. The exhibition project was developed in cooperation with the Goethe Institute in Bratislava on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of its foundation in Slovakia.
‘Once upon a time’ (2011): This installation shows eight different flags of countries that no longer exist today. They hang together from one spot on the ceiling like an impermeable body and can therefore hardly be identified. How many people have fought senseless battles for these symbols?
