Iniva (Institute of International Visual Arts)
Thursday, May 8, 2014
Rivington Place

With Dr Andrea Phillips, public programme curator, Istanbul Biennial 2013; Övül Durmusoglu, independent curator, and visual arts writer Fisun Güner. This discussion is organised to provide context around and responding to Burak Delier’s exhibition at Iniva, Freedom has no script. Burak Delier’s work is acutely political; he questions links between corporate culture and artistic practice, a real concern for artists in Turkey.

His practice often questions his position as an artist and the difficulties associated with negotiating the politics of this situation. More info and booking:…
