Abstract or Description

Discusses the video work of Turkish film-maker Kutlug Ataman curated under the title 'De-Regulation', and the subsequent research project developed out of this entitled 'Istanbul - Skin of the City' which includes photographs, a 'visual essay' by Stefan Roemer, an archive of wedding cultures throughout Turkey assembled by Nermin Saybasili, television, posters, books and magazines. The author describes Ataman's video installations, many of which include female subjects, considers the focus on Turkish lives, examines the fictions of identification in many of the video testimonies, and comments on sexuality in the narratives. She considers what is meant by experience and comments on her interest in creolised subjects.
