Ways Of Seeing

Written by Sabine Küper on . Posted in Events, Seen Beyond


Plato’s Allegory of the Cave is an ancient attempt to describe the psychology of perception. A group of people who have lived chained to the wall of a cave all of their lives are facing a blank wall. The people watch shadows projected on the wall from objects passing in front of a fire behind them, and give names to these shadows. The shadows are the prisoners’ reality. In Plato’s allegory Socrates explains how the philosopher is like a prisoner who is freed from the cave and comes to understand that the shadows on the wall are not reality at all, for he can perceive the true form of reality rather than the manufactured reality that is the shadows seen by the prisoners.

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.
