Wo bitte geht es zur Mehmet-Turgut-Straße?
Archival pigment print
40 x 30 cm
Edition of 50 (21-50)
Mehmet Turgut was the 5th NSU murder victim, he was shot on February 25, 2004 in Rostock at a snack bar. The street signs were renamed by activists in the Berlin district of Prenzlauer Berg near the synagogue which had been spied on by the NSU. The renaming of the street took place at the same time as the NSU trial was pronounced at the Munich Higher Regional Court – to point out the structural deficit that victims and affected persons of racist violence are NOT at the centre of memorial culture which stands in contrast to the strong media attention for the perpetrators.
The profits of my edition will be donated to the 140 sqm Place of Remembrance of the Initiative February 19 in Hanau, which commemorates the racist attack on February 19, 2020.
