For Nase Zine 03 we invited artists with various connections to Turkey to design one page of the Zine about the failed coup attempt İn Turkey and the post-coup mood in the country.
For several hours on 15 th July’s night hundreds of Turkish soldiers appeared to have taken control of key areas of the main cities of Ankara and Istanbul. Who was behind attempted Turkey coup? How did Erdogan use religion as a power against the coup attempt? What are the concequences of the ‘cleansing’ after failed coup attemp? What’s the mood in Turkey a month on from the failed coup? These question we won`t be able to answer but we will question them through our outputs.
Nase Zine is a photocopy magazine, founded by Deniz Beşer, La Garçonne and Muzaffer Hasaltay Du von Jetzt. It is published in three languages German, Turkish and English. We understand the Zine and its events as a point for a get-together of the Vienna based Turkish and post-migration subcultural scene.
The Name of the Zine is inspired by the phrase “to stick your nose in…” which exists in Turkish (‘herşeye burnunu sokmak”) as well as in German (“die Nase in etwas stecken”). The collective of Nase Zine wants to share with you the joy of sticking your nose in a lot of things.
