If You’d Like to See This Flag in Colors, Burn It (In memory of Marinus Boezem), 2017 by Ahmet Ögüt

Ahmet Öğüt is an internationally-renowned sociocultural initiator and conceptual artist. He consistently seeks out collaborators from outside of the art world, finding unique ways to grapple with complex social issues ranging from migration to civil unrest with a sense of humor. Öğüt’s flag is inspired by Dutch visual artist Marinus Boezem’s postcard-sized photograph entitled “If you’d like to see this photo in colors, burn it” (1967-1969).
