Artist in Residence 2015/2016 from Berlin in Istanbul Julia Lazarus is presneting her movie Northern Forests within the exhibition IN THE BLINK OF A BIRD until July 16th at DEPO Istanbul.

During her six-month scholarship stay in Istanbul supported by the Berlin Senate, she began to work on a film about the impact of the gigantic construction and infrastructure measures in the Istanbul metropolitan area, which are currently being massively promoted by the Turkish government. Together with the ecological activist group Kuzey Ormanlari Savunmasi, K.O.S., she visited construction sites, took part in the meetings of local residents and got an insight into the organized civilian resistance to the capital-driven destruction of the community’s living space.

NSK State Pavilion Venice 2017

The NSK State Pavilion, alongside an event that is defined by cultural ambitions, provides the unique opportunity to rethink what a contemporary state should be. In particular, NSK State-in-Time offers an open form of citizenship that contrasts markedly with the spatial states. This pavilion will therefore put the issues that most trouble the states of today – migration, citizenship, history and identity. Given its location in Venice, it will also provoke questions about European heritage and its relation to the actual people living here. This pavilion will seek to generate ideas from a range of individuals about how to build new collectivities and shared histories between peoples. While fragmentation and antagonism seems to be the only prospects for Europe’s immediate future, NSK Pavilion will try to look beyond the deprived horizon and try to imagine a new community.
