The Empire Project presents the second edition of the "Bashibazouk" exhibitions between
21 November 2013 - 11 January 2014. The exhibition consists of a diversity of mediums 
from sculpture to digital design from 4 artists: Banu Birecikligil, Can Pekdemir, Filippos Tsitsopoulos and Sena.

“Bashibazouk” takes its title from the term describing an alternative recruitment form of irregular soldiers in the Ottoman army that functioned as scouts in war to destabilize the opposing army until 19th century when they were disbanded for their disruptive behaviour. In an attempt to re-visit the concept as a satyre of the human condition in contemporary culture, the artists in this exhibition were selected due to the unsubmissive, exploratory, and risk taking nature of their works.
