Deutschland - kinetic object with sound - modified barrel orgel, electric motor, 77,5x107,5cm - 2019
Nasan Tur used a real barrel organ to become part of the exhibition; it plays automatically at regular intervals. The melody of the German national anthem can be heard, but slowed down to such an extent that it appears distorted - droning, tortured. As a cultural feature, national anthems serve an identity-forming sense of community, but at the same time, terms such as "nation" and "national" have an exclusionary character.
