Parodying the format of a regular newspaper column, Today in History/Tarihte Bugün presents a series of drawings and paraphrased stories, extracted from Turkish newspapers from the last four decades. The news stories are sometimes poetic, sometimes overtly political, and sometimes strangely surreal. Dislocated from their original context and presented as an artist’s impression, the work reveals a changing society, and questions what we perceive to be news and the construction of truth, fiction and history.

Text in Turkish and English.

Co-published by Book Works and Platform Garanti, and edited with November Paynter, it is the third in a series of co-publishing partnerships initiated by Book Works, entitled Fabrications, commissioned and edited by Gerrie van Noord.
