Another Perfect Day

As Ahmet Ogut describes it: “One fine day, I was walking on a narrow street in Istanbul. Then the electricity suddenly went off. While I was walking on this dark street, I saw a motorcycle with the engine on facing a small window. The motorcycle’s headlight was on and the light was shining through the small window of a basement. I came closer and looked inside through the window and—surprise!” Ogut recreates the incident in a basement room of KW Institute for Contemporary Art in a performance that brings one man’s practical inventivity from the streets of Istanbul to Berlin.
