The theme of Akbank 38th Contemporary Artists Prize Exhibition is “On Everyday Life”.

“On Everyday Life”

In response to the economic policies, cultural constructs, ecological decisions and suggestions that are presented to us in the context of the usual fluctuations that we face in our everyday lives, the realms of thinking and producing together have become integral parts of daily life. And in our present-day, the concept of artistic production – the production that takes place in the creative realm within the macro cosmos – is now a necessary component for organizing life.

On the other hand, as the Situationists of Paris of 1968 have forecast a world of relationships mediated by images, people are now intuitively understanding reality in the context of the spectacle, and making their decisions through a relationality with the rules and forms prepared for them.

While art strives towards finding new forms of expression and influence, living continues. What is the artistic form of life today? And how do everyday experiences prepare the artists of the future for their roles in these new realities?

The “Creative Time” project organized by Nato Thompson since 2007 was a source utilised in writing this text.
