Pera Museum presented Katherine Behar: Data’s Entry, the first museum survey exhibition of this New York-based artist who moves fluidly between sculpture, performance, video, and writing. Curated by Fatma Çolakoğlu and Ulya Soley, the exhibition was accompanied by a comprehensive catalogue.
This catalogue brings together Katherine Behar’s works from the exhibition. It features an essay by the artist, which focuses on data visualization and how it expands to art and digital culture, as well as an essay by Fatma Çolakoğlu and Ulya Soley about Behar’s works in the exhibition and how they translate into contemporary culture. Daniel Rosenberg discusses the etymology of data in terms of measuring and draws parallels between the Suna and İnan Kıraç Foundation Anatolian Weights and Measures Collectionand Behar’s work. Patricia Ticineto Clough coins the term “datalogical turn” to reflect her idea of the contemporary trajectory and talks about Behar’s work in this context. Alexander Galloway discusses how the ideas of black box and black bloc came together in the late 20th century and reflects upon the possible outcomes. The catalogue also features an interview by Tung-Hui Hu, in which he directs challenging questions to Katherine Behar.
