The State of Ata: the contested imagery of power in Turkey
The contested imagery of power in Turkey
"...artists Mike Mandel and Chantal Zakari examine the contemporary imagery of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, Turkey's revolutionary leader after World War I. ...The State of Ata weaves together the artists' photographs of Turkish society, the public imagery and sculptural presence of Atatürk, documentation of their own interventions and performances, interviews, and a collection of archival and popular imagery. The book is conceived as a collection of books within books: a photo book, a school book, a diary, a fantasy album of military portraits."--Back cover. In English with Turkish translation.
