Merve Ünsal (b.1985, The Hague) is an artist based in Istanbul. She is currently interested in tracing artistic production through the lecture format. She has previously explored this topic through writing, editing, and visual and verbal collages that employ automatization and found imagery. She is the co-founder of m-est.org
, an artist-centered online project in which artist works, studio visits, and articles based on or related to conversations on visual practices are published.
