Police Perception of My Criminal Self Portrait

Political governments in Turkey continue their rule over criminalizing the social parts which are “against” their own ideological norms.

And, the police organization, which implements the ideology that is produced by the government, is informed through the seminars on “criminal identity” about the certain typologies’ possibility to be criminals.

My work tries to open the social problems in Turkey into discussion by creating my portrait again with the government’s perspective thereby placing the codifications which are produced by the police on my daily clothes.
