Gülsün Karamustafa (b. 1946, lives and works in Istanbul) is one of the most important artists of the second half of the 20th century in Turkey, where her practice has had a major influence on younger generations of artists since the 1990s.
Following the first retrospective of her work at SALT Istanbul in 2013, the Hamburger Bahnhof—Museum für Gegenwart—Berlin is now presenting the first comprehensive survey of Karamustafa’s art to be shown in a museum outside Turkey. Spread over 1,000 square metres of exhibition space, „Gülsün Karamustafa. Chronographia“ presents around 110 works dating from the 1970s to the present day and encompassing a variety of media, such as painting, installation, performance and video.The exhibition is supported by the Hauptstadtkulturfonds.
