Kuratiert von Isin Önol

This exhibition project deals with the moments of reconsiderations as well as possible subjective manipulations of the representations and interpretations of past events as a response to our ambivalent relationship with the notion of history. It aims at problematizing our possible individual contributions to social and collective amnesia through subtle manipulations.

While histories are being continuously re-written from opposing political point of views alternatively to our official histories, we become more and more aware of the fact that commentary on history on an objective level can only be a desperate prospect. The project invites artists to deal with the notion of alteration of information between past and present from a variety of motives of representation and to reintroduce ambivalent traces of some past moments through their subjective stances.
