Nezaket Ekici is an internationally renowned performance artist whose installations have appeared in more than 70 countries on four continents. Born in Kırşehir, Turkey, she emigrated to Germany with her family at the age of 3; she is currently based in Berlin, Stuttgart, and Istanbul. Ekici holds a Master's in Art Education from the Ludwig Maximilian University in Munich and a Master's in Performance Art from the Hochschule der Bildenden Künste, Braunschweig. As a self-described artistic nomad, her works are inspired by cultural traditions, identities, religions, histories of art, and architectures from around the world. Ekici finds inspiration for her work in the social and cultural atmosphere of everyday life, which she channels into performances and installations that employ her body as a narrative instrument.
