Ibraaz Talks: 13th Istanbul Biennial
Köken Ergun: Lived Experience
Ibraaz Talks is a series of specially curated conversations with artists, curators and writers. Participants are invited to respond to a particular issue or keyword that addresses formal and conceptual issues affecting both their personal practices and contemporary visual culture. Initiated at Art Dubai in 2013, this latest series was staged at SALT Beyoğlu during the opening days of the 13th Istanbul Biennial. In this discussion, artist Köken Ergun talks to Ibraaz Senior Editor, Omar Kholeif, about the idea of lived experience in relation to the artist's experience and interest in theatricality, while considering performative art practices and their efficacy in the twenty-first century.
