Deutsche Bank Collection has acquired the last edition of Şükran Moral’s photographic work “Despair”. Founded in 1979, the Deutsche Bank Collection’s initial aim was to support young artists from Germany, but as the bank has grown exponentially, the collection has also expanded its acquisition policy to international artists, both emerging and established, from different parts of the world.
Şükran Moral is one of the most important performance artists in Turkey. Her work, which is in major collections including the British Museum, London; Istanbul Museum of Modern Art; ARTER, Istanbul; Deutsche Telekom, Germany, has been exhibited in numerous museum exhibitions and international biennials, including the Venice Biennale and the Istanbul Biennial. Her film “Despair” was recently on view in a two-person exhibition at Galeri Zilberman, alongside prominent Austrian video and performance artist VALIE EXPORT (September –October 2013).
