Mehmet & Kazim

Mehmet & Kazim aka The Kissing Cousins approach stereotypes and propaganda strategies, which are sometimes subject, sometimes method in their works.  Their joint works are a frontal attack on traditional categorizations, such as male, exotic, or terms like graffiti or "contemporary art", disguised as a nice little joke. Through humorous persiflage and appropriation, they cite and mock such categories as empty commodity forms in their murals, zines, videos, and books. Mehmet & Kazim are strongly influenced by the esthetics of comics and advertising postings, without bluntly mirroring them.
