çATIşMa // coLLisiOn ( l’avenir) Artist Talk & Video Screening
"...But there is also another 'collision (l’avenir)', in which I am more interested. The noun becomes a verb: to collide, to interrupt, to jar, and transforms a fixed event into a confrontation with the Other or the Unknown.“
During his residency stay at halka art project, Assad was interested to work with the term 'collision' in relation to public spheres in contemporary Istanbul.
For this evening he prepared a short input talk on his definition of 'collision (l’avenir)’ in relation to his own artistic practice as well. He will underline his talk with a video excerpt of his own video installation ’Shot / Reverse Shot’ (Jerusalem, Berlin, 2010) and the screening of ’The Negotiation’ (38min., Berlin, 2011) by Azin Feizabadi / Kaya Bekalham.
