Untitled | 2003 | Ahmet Ogut & Osman Bingol | C-Print | 6 photographic prints on foam board | 50 x 70cm


In Untitled, created together with Osman Bingol, the two artists dressed up in a uniform and a smart suit and documented their performance with a series of photographs. In an amusing role-play, the soldier and the politician face one another, support one another and show that they are not so dissimilar after all. The work becomes an allegorical representation, charged with black humour, of the complex relationships of dependency, complicity and subordination between state and army.
