Özge Topçu

Özge Topçu

Özge Topçu (1987, Kirklareli) lives and works in Berlin and Lisbon. She graduated from Yildiz Technical University, Art and Design Faculty, Combined Arts Program in 2014. In her works, the approach is based on the artificial fiction of the contemporary world system and how the absolute credibility of this fiction was influential on people. Thereupon, in order to question the credibility of the instruments of modernism, which is one of these systems, she feels the need to operate the concepts of family-individual-construction of national identity as well as architectural propaganda in this new fiction. She does this by manipulating their contexts, spaces and places.

Topçu’s work was part of the exhibition House of Wisdom at Framer Framed from 24 November 2017 till 7 January 2018.
