The City Amidst The Buildings

Exhibition
The City Amidst The Buildings

Curator: Ali Akay

Artist: Société Réaliste

In an exhibition, curated by Ali Akay, an artist cooperative Société Réaliste will be working under a title developed through the viewpoint of the French sociologist Gabriel Tarde at Akbank Art Gallery. Instead of looking at the people and the architects of the city, this cooperative focuses on “the city amidst the buildings”. The city references the film of King Vidor dealing with the immense growth of New York after World War II when modernism was in rise, and is realized with an intervention and diversion. In images freed from its people and their words the city exists as a set flashing before our eyes.

The lottery for Green Cards is a peculiar way paved for including people in this dream. However, here in contrast to the film Fountainhead developing with images of people effaced and devoid of subjectivity, Société Réaliste employs images of people who would like to but don’t know whether or not they would be able to take place in the Green Card lottery. The sarcasm of a humanitarian situation is brought onto the agenda; with the people who are effaced on the one hand and on the other those who will be effaced only after letting a few amongst them the chance to exist.
