Ali Mahmut Demirel

Ali Mahmut Demirel, born in Turkey in 1972, is a Berlin-based artist. He studied nuclear engineering and architecture before pursuing art. Demirel started to make video and sound work in the early 90’s while he was a researcher at Middle East Technical University, Audio-Visual Research Center. In the 2000’s, he focused his work on real-time computer-generated images and began to create interactive live audio-visual performances. Following this period, Demirel returned to video installation work with a trilogy under the theme ‘Post-Apocalyptic Utopias.’ Those videos formed Demirel’s solo show titled ‘ISLE’ at Arter Istanbul in 2018. Recently he is working on a series that connects ecology, nature and myth.

His work has been presented at Guggenheim Museum, New York; Arter, Istanbul; CTM, Berlin; TodaysArt.NL; ifa Galerie, Berlin; ICA, London; ACAW, Max Protetch Gallery, New York; Sammlung ESSL, Wien; European Media Art Festival, Osnabruck; International Short Film Festival, Hamburg; among others.
