Performance Artist – Nil Yalter

Nil yalter

Turkish Artist- Performance Art, Visual Art, Feminist Art, Video

French and Turkish visual artist.

Nil Yalter has worked as a pioneer of socially engaged and technically advanced art. She is one of the first artists in France to use the newly emerging medium of video. Born in Cairo in 1938, the artist grew up in Istanbul and has been living in Paris since 1965. With Yalter’s first survey exhibition in Germany, the Museum Ludwig is presenting the diversity of her work, including previously little-known paintings from her early work and video installations from the early 1970s to multimedia installations in which she combines photography, video, drawings, and sculpture into collages.
