Asa Jungnelius and Ahu Antmen

Talk

April 8, 2014 / 19:00

In conjunction with the exhibition Aurora: Contemporary Nordic Glass Art, Asa Jungnelius, a remarkable name from Sweden’s young generation of artists, will be in conversation with art critic Ahu Antmen. The conversation will focus on Nordic countries’ well-established contemporary glass art tradition and how it has evolved, alongside an examination of Asa Jungnelius’ work, which poses questions on identity, gender and consumer society.

The event will be held in English and will be simultaneously translated into Turkish. Free of admissions.

Nam June Paik Video Art’s Pioneer

Nam June Paik was video art’s pioneer (1932 –2006). It is interesting that while Warhol and Nameth were experimenting with psychedelic happenings that combined rock, film and performance, the video art pioneers Nam June Paik, Stephen Beck, Eric Siegel and Steina Vasulka were researching in a similar direction.

Midnight Horror Stories: The Last Ferry
Galip Dursun

I remembered a game as I was waiting in the passenger lounge for the ferry to arrive just a few minutes ago. A game we used to play at home when I was young, in my country that is very far away from here, a relic from the distant past; I don’t even remember how we used to play it. The kind of game that makes me feel a thousand times lonelier than I already am among the crowd waiting to get on the ferry.
