Nezaket Ekici was born in 1970 in Turkey and has lived in Germany since the age of three. She dedicated herself to art very early on and is now an internationally sought-after performance artist. Her own body is the center of her work and builds a dynamic connection with the audience. The question of one’s own identity, the skeptical confrontation with role models and conventions which define the female body, which submit to ethnic and political ideas, is thus from the very beginning a central theme in her work.
