Preview: Hiwa K Pays Homage to a Silent Protest

Hiwa K describes the anecdotal inspirations behind his work in in this preview of the upcoming Berlin episode from Season 9 of the Art in the Twenty-First Century television series.

Shown at work installing My Father’s Colour Period (2013), the artist recalls the memory associated with the work. “Color TVs didn’t come to Kurdistan because the government is not investing in those minority areas,” says the artist. “So my father was putting color foil on the TV. It’s a very silent protest.”

Berlin premieres September 21, 2018 at 10:00 p.m. on PBS.
