This Never Happened. No 2

Year: 2013

Part two of the This Never Happened is a chilling look at the rapid radical Islamization of the modern Republic of Turkiye within the last decade. Through a journey in time, the piece chronicles the ways in which the country’s history and culture is manipulated through fear, intimidation, mass arrests, and foreign intervention until a newly prescribed culture overwrites the old.

Performed at Highways Performance Space and Gallery, Los Angeles 2013

Runtime:  20 minutes.
