Banu Cennetoğlu & Vasif Kortun:
Donnerstag, 30. Juni 2016, 19 Uhr, MMK 1
The artist Banu Cennetoğlu explores the political, social and cultural dimension of the production,
representation and distribution of knowledge and asks how it feeds into a society’s collective thought
and becomes part of its ideology. Cennetoğlu has participated in major international exhibitions such
as the 10th Gwangju Biennale, South Korea; at the 53rd Venice Biennale (2009) she and Ahmet Öğüt
represented Turkey. She is represented at the 13th Fellbach Triennial of Small-Scale Sculpture (2016).
In conversation with:
The free-lance critic and curator Vasif Kortun is known as one of the most important critical voices in
the discourse on Turkey’s radically changing cultural politics. He has organized numerous international exhibitions focussing on art production in Turkey, for example the 3rd and 9th International Istanbul Biennale (1992 and 2005) as well as the Turkish pavilions at the São Paulo Biennale (1994 and 1998) and at the 52nd Venice Biennale (2007).
Der Vortrag findet in englischer Sprache statt.
