Born in Iskenderun, on the Turkish-Syrian border, Fatma Bucak makes videos, performances, photographs, and installations that grapple with the poetics and pragmatics of borders—their structure, implications, and human consequences. Previous works from the Turkish-Armenian border, the Mexican-U.S. border, the Dakhla refugee camp in Western Sahara, and the Tuz Gölü in central Anatolia are presented alongside a series of new works addressing media censorship, state violence, and mass migration. This exhibition is Bucak’s East Coast premiere.
