Analytic Perspectives on Time as a Form
Şeref Erol

Talk

February 28, 2019 / 18:30

In a talk as part of The Time Needs Changing exhibition, artist and academic Şeref Erol will explore the idea of “time as the enabler of our facilities, or in other words, our creations or conceptualizations” through correlations drawn with formal sciences (logic, mathematics) and philosophy. The thought processes Erol will tackle can be summed as a pre- and post-Kantian approach to our philosophical and scientific understanding through a critique of Kant.

A firm believer in the idea that a collection needs to be upheld at least by four generations and comparing this continuity to a relay race, Nahit Kabakcı began creating the Huma Kabakcı Collection from the 1980s onwards. Today, the collection can be considered one of the most important and outstanding examples among the rare, consciously created, and long-lasting ones of its kind in Turkey.
