- What’s On
Anna Laudel presents Intergalactic, showcasing selected artworks of 12 contemporary artists including Beyza Boynudelik, Şafak Çatalbaş, Alper Derinboğaz, Emin Mete Erdoğan, Horasan, Ekin Su Koç, Ali Miharbi, Ali İbrahim Öcal, Özcan Saraç, Meltem Sırtıkara, Merve Şendil and İrem Tok. Running between 3 September and 20 October 2019, the exhibition departs from the question of what the future will be like if we manage to bring and sustain our civilisation beyond the confines of our planet.
Intergalactic is part of the 16th Istanbul Biennial’s neighbouring events programme. Adopting a transdisciplinary, site-specific and participatory approach in her curatorial practice, in Intergalactic curator İpek Yeğinsü focuses on how humanity’s existing socio-cultural structures will be affected by a potential migration towards space, and in doing so, opens an independent room for discussion with regards to contemporary conceptual dichotomies like the past and the future.
