Gülsün Karamustafa

One of Turkey’s most outspoken and celebrated artists, Gülsün Karamustafa has a forty-year oeuvre distinguished by installations, paintings, sculptures, and videos that examine the complexities of gender, globalization, and migration. In the late 1980s, Karamustafa began making sculptures and installations using found objects, including Create Your Own Story with the Given Material (1997), which features child-sized white cotton shirts that have been sewn shut with black cord in a meditation on the plight of immigrant children in Turkey. She has had solo exhibitions at the Musée d’Art et d’Histoire, Geneva (1999); Kunsthalle Fridericianum, Kassel, Germany; Museum Villa Stuck, Munich; and Dunkers Kulturhus, Helsingborg, Sweden.
