Collectives From The City of Public Employees: Ankara/Anakara/Angora vol.3
For years I used to “listen Doors and drink alcohol” in the streets of Ankara as the artist group Avareler (The Vagabonds) recommends.The group, based in Ankara, is dealing with ugly billboards, urban development of a city where was beautiful a decade ago; the political situation changing towards the conservative living habits and cultural transformation. It can be said that their works are generally generated by the love of the city of Ankara.
The Pink Series is a significant intervention by painting billboards, trash carts or sculptures of goat, focusing on the frustrating change in the city planning. Although the group points out that the choice of the colour pink doesn’t have a significant meaning, it is a nice way of expressing against the sexist and homophobic government ruling the country.
