Kevser Güler and Marina Papazyan will interpret images, questions, and suggestions related to the works included in the What Time Is It? exhibition by drawing connections with selected literature from Turkey. In these narratives, she wishes to think together about modes of understanding freedom and responsibility, along with the imaginaries of present and future envisioned by these modes, both in individual lives and within the context of society in Turkey. The workshop will be comprised of a joint reading of texts selected by Kevser Güler, Marina Papazyan and the participants as well as processes of interpreting the works focused upon in the What Time Is It? exhibition.
Kevser Güler received her bachelor's degree in Industrial Engineering from Boğaziçi University and studied Philosophy in Galatasaray University for her MA. Kevser, who has been a member of the Istanbul Biennial team between 2007 and 2014, has been conducting researches on Arter collection since 2014 while she continues working as a freelance curator.
Marina Papazyan graduated from Gerrit Rietveld Academie (Amsterdam) Department of Fine Arts in 2018. She works on issues of vulnerability and grief through the collecting, arranging and voicing of found images and documents. Lately, she has focused on processes of survival and extinction, drawing particularly from her own body, family and kin. Her most recent work could be characterized as fiction, where she writes specifically on the complications of being together and permeable to one another.
The talk will be in Turkish.
