Seda Hepsev «KILLJOY»

KILLJOY - eine ortsspezifische Installation von Seda Hepsev im Kabinett.

Dear Maggie*
It's strange that I read your story years ago and was touched by it now but not then. When I came across your name in Sara's book**, I had the chance to think about it again. That's why I decided to write to you.
I think what struck me most about your story was that you blame yourself for what happened to you. As a young girl you had no right to be willful, so you deserved what happened.
The same actions have different consequences for girls and boys. Because girls' willfulness turns into willpower in boys. I'm sorry that this equation led to your unhappy ending.
It wasn't your fault that you didn't want to obey.
It was not a fault that there was no will to obey.
I will always remember you as strong-willed, willful and good.
My best
