The opening takes place on Saturday 1 September at 17.00 hrs at BAK, and from 19.00 hrs at BAK’s temporary venue for this exhibition, De Uithof (Laagbouw Zuid, Heidelberglaan 2). At this location drinks and snacks will be served.

Two major video installations by Kutluğ Ataman are on view. Each work examines a community striving to construct an ideal place in their own way, although from radically different political, social, cultural, and economic points of departure.

The exhibition is realized in collaboration with Treaty of Utrecht, within the framework of Kunst in mijn buurt (Art in my neighborhood). For further information see
