Betül Aydın is a self-taught visual artist based in Munich, holding a background in media informatics and visual computing. After completing her PhD in France, she pursued her career as a full-time photographer. Her work explores the transient nature of time and the interconnectedness of events. Through her memories and collected archive material, she seeks to challenge the psychological recollection of the past and express the possibility of a non-linear and subjective time.
Recently, influenced by her relationships, pregnancies, and reflections on societal expectations, Aydın delves into themes like depression, motherhood, and dreams. Through photographic material, she aims to draw attention to the often-overlooked psychological struggles and vulnerabilities inherent in motherhood - challenges that are frequently dismissed due to historical and societal glorification of maternity. Additionally, through various mediums such as collage, print and painting, she explores the intricate dynamics of how modern technology, heightened knowledge, and societal expectations impact the psychology of mothers.
