Opening with Yalçın Sadak’s text “A Myth Following in the Footsteps of the Sun: Ahmet Güneştekin”, the publication is a visual essay based on the artist’s works covering different periods of his artistic production. In his essay, Sadak explains how to engage with any of artist’s works: We suddenly realize that we are being directed by the composition. It is clear that there is a switching hat. We are not building the composition, but, almost within an impulsive sophism, the composition constructs itself upon our capacity for reception. The book, designed by Kadir Karaer, includes photographs of the works with the texts and offers an overall review of artist’s oeuvre.
