'Agoraphobia': The Prologue Exhibition to the 13th Istanbul Biennial

Date uploaded: May 22, 2013

Agoraphobia, the prologue exhibition to the 13th Istanbul Biennial, will take place at TANAS, Berlin between 25th May and 27th July 2013. The exhibition is co-curated by Fulya Erdemci, the curator of the 13th Istanbul Biennial, and Istanbul Biennial director Bige Örer, with Kevser Güler as the assistant curator. Agoraphobia features works by 11 artists.

The exhibition aims to unfold the core question of public domain, central to the conceptual framework of the biennial, by questioning the politics of space in relation to freedom of expression.

The exhibition hosts works by Jimmie Durham, Freee (Dave Beech, Andy Hewitt and Mel Jordan), LaToya Ruby Frazier, Amal Kanawy, Lux Lindner, José Antonio Vega Macotela, Cinthia Marcelle, ┼×ener Özmen, Proyecto Secundario Liliana Maresca (Liliana Maresca Secondary School Project), Christoph Schäfer and Mierle Laderman Ukeles.

The DIALOGUE programme will take place on Saturdays throughout the exhibiton, bringing together visitors, curators and artists for conversational exhibition tours.
