This week on The Lonely Arts Club, we're joined by Fatos Üstek.
Fatos is the Director of the Liverpool Biennial, a curator and an art writer.
We're taken on a journey that begins in Turkey in the 1980s, where Fatos studied hard and dreamt of becoming a mathematician.
"Turkey has been going through a lot of changes - you might have been following. But growing up there has many positive sides. It was good but also you have many hardships, growing up as a woman in Turkey is an arduous task and I feel I've been supported by my family to cultivate the strong voice that I have today".
We hear about the transition into the arts; where this passion was ignited and how it's influenced Fatos' career, which has allowed her to travel and work around the world before coming to Liverpool.
Although like all events at the moment, Liverpool Biennial 2020 has been put on hold, we look forward to seeing what the future of the festival has in store.
