The television channel of ‘SiS’ is employed to bring artist works that use television programme as a form. Television programmes are produced at the set constructed within the exhibition space both before and during the exhibition, contributing to the flow of information during the course. Keeping record of contemporary memory creates a medium that can continue during the exhibition as well.
Apartment Project brings 8 artists who live in Berlin or on the way of moving to Berlin from İstanbul together in an exhibition and event serie titled “No Matter”.
The phrase “No Matter” has multiple meanings and is used in different contexts. Ambigious structure of this title refers to resistance and different interpretations of reality.
“In the blink of a bird” is the product of a collaborative work initiated by a group of individuals who pursue the possibilities of collective production, and reflect on the ways and methods of thinking, acting, departing and deciding together. The project which is hosted by the Apartment Project was launched in 2016. (more…)
