Collective work as BAÇOY KOOP // Exhibited within İz Öztat’s installation After, in the show called Land Without Land, Heidelberger Kunstverein. 2016.
BAÇOY KOOP (Printing, Duplication and Distribution Cooperative) departs from their research on the use of the mimeograph in the 1960s and 1970s by leftist organizations to duplicate and disseminate dissident content. They do an action of Birding—throwing pamphlets up in the air in a crowd to disseminate and to be disguised—by the sea to poetically address the current suppressive environment in Turkey. The pamphlets, duplicated with the mimeograph, suggest an associative plane of actions in relation to the geometric abstractions and are present in the exhibition space.
