6 channel video installation on 6 monitors
total duration of 6 videos 12:51 min

see 1:45 min video excerpt


The video is based on a series of interventions in Turkish teahouses, where usually only men spend time and play games. The artists and three Turkish women entered several teahouses to drink tea and to play “OKEY”. This was shot with a hidden camera by a male assistant and some of the material was used for the video piece.
