Müge Yılmaz

Born in Istanbul, Müge Yılmaz is a visual artist based in Amsterdam. In her work, she examines the paradoxes around the concept of protection with focus on community, survival and belief (faith). Through performances, photographs and installations she creates immersive environments inspired by feminist science-fiction. While keeping protection as a common denominator, her research creates speculations on preservation and scarcity. She constantly looks for trigger points in shape of visual manifestations that provoke subconscious reactions and reflexes. Her recent exhibitions include The Milk of Dreams, 59th Venice Biennial, 2022, The Seventh Continent, 16th Istanbul Biennial, 2019; Why Not Ask Again? 11th Shanghai Biennal, 2016; Tenminste Houdbaar Tot, Museum Arnhem, 2022; Posterity Hill at Wilfried Lentz, 2022.

Together with Anna Hoetjes, she initiated the Intersectional Feminist Science fiction Exchange, a project that aims to bring together a community of womxn, inserting their visions into the future at the intersection of literature and visual art.

Müge Yılmaz

is a place to discover Amsterdam’s dynamic and forward-thinking art scene.

Every year on the 1st of July we commemorate slavery and celebrate the abolition of slavery: Keti Koti. Since we believe that Keti Koti should be a national holiday, we are closed on the 1st of July. We asked Lydiënne Albertoe to design a graphic work for this particular occasion. The work is placed on the door of our Central Space and the windows of the Studio Space.
