Every week we feature a series of one selected artist who was published in our printed magazine. This person is blogging during that time.

Aras Gökten – Ostwest

Two years ago I took off for a month and went to Aserbaidschan. From there I travelled through Georgia and along the black sea to Istanbul. I had no goal or purpose to go to the places I have been. It was just curiosity, the joy of travelling and seeing things. In fact the most interessting things happend when I got lost. Ostwest (Eastwest) is a direction that does not exist.

Aras Gökten – Guest-Posts


October 23rd, 2014Author: Aras Gökten

Hi everybody,

I am glad to have this opportunity to be the guest blogger this week!  I`d like to start with “Arkanum” a recent work of mine, which is also my thesis. There is also a book.

»Arkanum« is part of a group exhibition right now in Berlin. So if you are from Berlin or if you will be here within the next days you are invited to come and visit #achtens, 17.10. – 26.10, SEZ Berlin, Landsberger Allee 77.
