Almost over! / "Lynch Map of Turkey: A map of Turkey showing locations of lynch acts and attempts" between 1992 and 2012

I have updated and published my qrtwork “Lynch Map of Turkey: A map of Turkey showing locations of lynch acts and attempts” the third time under the title “Almost over” (Bitmek üzere!).

I first produced my artwork on 17th January 2010 to be published at Turkish daily newspaper Birgün. The first title of my artwork was “Just a little bit remains!” (Az kaldı!) And the newspaper chose “The Republic of Lynch” as the headline for that page:

I updated the map on 26th September 2010 with 29 more lynch attempts under a new title “Even less remains!” (Daha da az kaldı!) and published it in my blog:

This third update titled “Almost over!” (Bitmek üzere!) included 50 new lynch attempts and acts, including those that were not successful merely because there was nobody at the target venue.

My artwork lists predominantly racist, nationalist, ethnic and homophobic hate attacks.

Although my artwork is based on a careful searching and archiving work over a long term, there may still be some lynch attempts or acts that have not been included, and I will of course regretfully add them to the list if I am informed about them.
I’m afraid to say “It’s over!” one day.
