Nil Yalter Exile Is a Hard Job

Since the 1970s, Nil Yal­ter has worked as a pi­oneer of so­cial­ly en­gaged and tech­ni­cal­ly ad­vanced art. She is one of the first artists in France to use the new­ly emerg­ing medi­um of video. Born in Cairo in 1938, the artist grew up in Is­tan­bul and has been liv­ing in Paris since 1965. With Yal­ter’s first sur­vey ex­hi­bi­tion in Ger­many, the Mu­se­um Lud­wig is pre­sent­ing the di­ver­si­ty of her work, in­clud­ing pre­vi­ous­ly lit­tle-known paint­ings from her ear­ly work and video in­s­tal­la­tions from the ear­ly 1970s to mul­ti­me­dia in­s­tal­la­tions in which she com­bines pho­tog­ra­phy, video, draw­ings, and sculp­ture in­to col­lages. The ex­hi­bi­tion traces the path of her en­gaged aes­thet­ic.
