Situational Dictionary: Now

Group Exhibition
Opening: 22nd June 2018 at 7pm
Part of 48h Neukölln

Political pressure, censorship, and violence are increasing daily in Turkey, forcing artists to change their artistic practices or leave the country. Berlin has long been a point of attraction for international artists. Since three to four years an increasing number of artists are
moving from Istanbul to Berlin to start new lives free from fear, pressure, and censorship, where they can pursue their artistic practices.

The exhibition situational dictionary: NOW picks up on the current situation in works by Ceren Oykut,Özlem Sarıyıldız, Ezgi Kılıncaslan, Mustafa Pancar, Lerna Babikyan and Ece Gökalp, developing new conceptual and visual tools to more adequately address such important contemporary
topics as migration, the rise of conservative and nationalist currents and their censorship, violence, and intolerance, as well as more general existential questions.

Apartment Project acts as an important contact point for the Turkish art community in Berlin. It is an interface for the Berlin public interested
in art, and the Neukölln neighborhood in general. (mehr …)
