Accompanying the exhibition, Gülsün Karamustafa: Chronographia 10.06.2016 to 23.10.2016 at Hamburger Bahnhof - Museum für Gegenwart - Berlin, this comprehensive monographic publication on Gülsün Karamustafa's work was published by Verlag für Moderne Kunst, featuring text contributions by Meltem Ahiska, Ovul O. Durmusoglu, Gülsün Karamustafa, Marion von Osten, and Melanie Roumiguière.

Gülsün Karamustafa (b. 1946) is regarded as one of the most important artists of the second half of the 20th century in Turkey, where her work has been a decisive influence on younger generations of Turkish artists since the 1990s. Internationally her work has been shown in numerous exhibitions. Now, after the first retrospective of her work at SALT Istanbul in 2013, the Hamburger Bahnhof will stage a comprehensive solo exhibition of her work in a museum setting, introducing her work to a wider public.

Karamustafa's oeuvre stretches from the mid-1970s to the present day and encompasses various media, including painting, installation, performance art, and video. Her work focuses on questions of migration, politically-induced nomadism, pop culture, feminism and gender, and often provides a critical analysis of the Western view of Middle-Eastern countries. Rendered in a variety of media, these subjects permeate all phases and forms of her artistic work and are of unmistakable relevance to current debates.
