Ahmet Öğüt lives and works in Amsterdam. Öğüt makes work that questions the way we chart and engage with history; focusing on the gaps and connections between subjective and collective memory. In these spaces, he constructs new versions and narratives – often playful and absurd – that counterbalance the relationship between history and the ideology.

Öğüt’s film documents a journey undertaken by a horse rider, dressed as a postman. The postman rode from Liverpool to Manchester, and in the style of a Royal Address, he delivered invitations to attend Liverpool Biennial.
