Contemporary Art // An Unknown

Seminar
Contemporary Art // An Unknown

Konuşmacı: Ebru Yetişkin

What does the term ‘contemporary art’ mean? What are the present-day art practices that do not fit into definitions like “the current art”, “contemporary art” and “new media art”? How could an understanding and practice of art that is transdisciplinary and is aiming at a hybrid practice of research develop in Turkey? The sociologist, art critic and curator Ebru Yetişkin will be sharing her study notes on contemporary art that she has accumulated during the last 5 years while in Turkey and abroad, and will be discussing her views on paratactic works.

Ebru Yetişkin is a sociologist, art writer and curator with a critical approach, who specializes in digital culture, and is currently teaching and conducting her research as an Associate Professor at Istanbul Technical University. Her curatorial work includes Kakofoni [Cacophony] (2013), Bilinmeyen Kod [Code Unknown] (2014), Dalgalar [Waves] (2015), X-CHANGE (2015), İllüzyonoskop [Illusionoscope] (2017), Arayüzler [Interfaces] (2018) exhibitions, and she participated as a curator in the Dystopie Sound Art Festival / Berlin. Yetişkin also organizes public seminars and events that focus on the relationships between art and digital culture, such as Bulaşan Bedenler: Ağ Siyaseti [Contagious Bodies: Network Politics in The Age of Data-Oriented Worlds] (2015-2016), Günümüz Sanatı // Bir Başka [Today’s Art // Yet Another] (2017-2018), Bilim, Teknoloji, Toplum Muhabbetleri [Science, Technology, Society Talks] (2018 – cont.) and Günümüz Sanatı // Bir Muamma [Contemporary Art // An Unknown] (2019 – cont.). She has worked as an editor on Toplumbilim: Postkolonyal Düşünce Özel Sayısı [Special Issue on Post-Colonial Thought] (2010), and on the book of poems by the robot poet Deniz Yılmaz, titled Diğerleri Gibi [Like The Others] (2016).

The event is free of charge.
Invitations available from the Akbank Sanat ticket office on the event day, one hour before the event begins.
