Cardboard Maps
Ferhat Özgür

“A flag becomes a real one only because of the blood on it
And a land only becomes a "motherland" if lives were sacrificed for it.”

Look at these young men!…They are selling cardboard maps of Turkey. They’ve just arrived in metropol from far away. They have the same copies of the peripheric maps in their hands. As if they are representing our poetry for love of motherland. In fact their sale is very good too. Although petty vendors are forbidden outside the shops the police does not seem to intervene with them, perhaps they are supposed to be the protectors of the motherland's frontiers. It is of course strange to protect our borders only with cardboard maps!... Are these cardboard maps really the protectors? We can read the slogans which are on the top and on the bottom of the maps as a glorification of the extreme right wing movement.

"A flag becomes a real one only because of the blood on it”
"And a land only becomes a "motherland" if lives were sacrificed for it."


Ferhat Özgür (TU)
Artist, based in Ankara, Turkey.
