Songül Boyraz, »Kümmeltürk, What else?, Familie Öntürk, Restaurant Kümmeltürk«, 2010

Eines von drei Plakatmotiven für den Linzer Stadtraum / One of three posters for Linz’s urban space · je 62 x 89 cm each

 
Songül Boyraz is a visual artist and has studied sculpture at the Mimar Sinan University in Istanbul and in Vienna at the Academy of Fine Arts. In the course of this education the focus of her artistic practice shifted from classical sculpture to performance and to media works with photography and video, which she often realises in the form of spatial, installative works in exhibitions.

Also out of her own personal concern as an immigrant in Austria, for »Update – New Photography from Austria« in the framework of the TRIENNALE LINZ , Songül Boyraz formulates a politically sophisticated work, which – based in the exhibition space – claims its effect above all in public space. Immigrants stage themselves confidently in the style of advertising campaigns with VI Ps, or people from the arts and culture perform with explicit statements on the situation of immigrants in Austria. The pictures are integrated into the exhibition as free posters, while they are also placarded in the areas around the city of Linz.
