Artists’ Talk and Book Signing

The State of Ata: the contested imagery of power in Turkey, Co-sponsored by the University of Arizona Center for Middle Eastern Studies

Photographers Chantal Zakari and Mike Mandel will present a lecture on their new artists’ book, which examines the visual imagery of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk inTurkish culture. Zakari and Mandel, one American, the other Turkish, employed the imagery of Atatürk to create a portrait of the body politic: the symbol of the secular revolutionary hero, the power of the state that resides with the military, and in opposition, the demands for renewed religious political expression symbolized by the Islamist scarf.  www.TheStateofAta.info
