Kunak, Göksu

Göksu Kunak_c_Tomas Eyz

Göksu Kunak (Ankara, 1985) is an artist and writer based in Berlin. Göksu’s interest lies in queer methodologies (especially chronopolitics) and hybrid texts that deal with the performative lingo(s) of contemporary lifestyles. As a non-native English writer, their texts play with multilingualism and syntax. Influenced by Arabesk culture and late modernities, Göksu imagines new situations out of real encounters that point out the problematics of hetero-patriarchal structures. Orientalism, self-Orientalization (the perception of the ‘Eastern’, and how the Eastern sees themselves through this construction), as well as Eastern masculinities in relation to state governmentality; camouflage and self-censorship are other interests of Göksu.
