Turkey’s Trade Ministry filed a lawsuit demanding the dissolution of Anadolu Kültür, an institution founded by Kavala in 2002.
Kavala has been detained since 2017. Human rights activists have called for his release due to a lack of “facts, information, or evidence.”
Imprisoned since 2017, Osman Kavala was found not guilty of attempting to overthrow the government, but re-detained on new charges before he could even taste freedom.
The center of Kurdish cultural revival has a new nonprofit independent art space that hopes to bridge the divide between local artists and the international art community.
