Eindhoven Caucus

Oǧuz Tatari


Born in Istanbul, Turkey in 1978. He abandoned his enrolment in kindergarten, because the girl sleeping on the upper bunk pissed when she slept. He also hated to be obligated to sleep during the best time of the day. He abandoned his studies in the civil engineering because the class consisted of 80 boys and 4 girls. He abandoned his Master studies of Art Teaching because, well, the only reason to be there was to postpone military duty. He abandoned his advertising career, because rather than being an ad maker he was an artist. He is thinking of abandoning his studies in the Master of Arts in Istanbul and finishing the one at the Bauhaus University, Weimar, the program titled 'Art in Public Space and New Artistic Strategies'. He is willing to abandon his Turkish citizenship and become Dutch.
