"Ceylan Öztrük's «Phantasm Manifesto» furthermore extends the exhibitions and the idea of manifestation with a group of works reminiscent of architectural elements with a propagandistic purpose. At second glance, however, the paper sculptures seem ironic, as they are deprived of any function and convey images or writing that do not refer to anything concrete. Perhaps they are to be understood as artistic «counter- or anti-monuments,» but they can also be read, as Öztrük's overall contribution titled «Pink Tabula Rasa» suggests, as a possible re-description."
