Abstract or Description:

The Society of Friends of Halit presents documentation of their research and activism concerning the murder of Halit Yozgat, 21, on 6 April 2006 in a family-run internet café in Kassel, Germany. Yozgat became the ninth victim in a string of racially motivated murders of immigrants conducted by a group known as the National Socialist Underground (NSU).

The Society of Friends of Halit situated the shots that killed Yozgat within a long history of racist violence that is deeply rooted in German society. We used the term “NSU Complex” to describe this combination of neo-Nazi terror and institutional and structural racism.

The Society hosted a series of presentations and discussions during Documenta 14 in Kassel, specifically addressing the killing of Halit Yozgat and the presence of state intelligence officer Andreas Temme at the scene of the murder.

The installation includes the three-channel video 77sqm_9:26min and accompanying written report by Forensic Architecture at the Neue Neue Galerie (Neue Hauptpost).
