“What is Contemporary?” in Belgrade and Istanbul

Isidora Ficovic had a residency in Istanbul 2006. She produced a Video discussing the question “What is Contemporary?”.

“While I was on the residency program of Platform Garanti Contemporary Art Center I felt very much ‘contemporary’. I wondered whether this could be understood as a kind of commune, or as mutual feelings between people?” (İsidora Ficovic)

She spoke with Ahmet Ogut, Anton Vidokle, Oyku Ozsoy, Josuander Pol, Liesbeth Bik, Ozge Acikkol, Runo Lagomarsino, Secil Yersel, Mark Aerial Waller, Nikusha, Huseyin Alptekin, Bernardo Giorgi, Fatos Ustek, Tunc Ali Cam, Isidora Ficovic, Banu Cennetoglu, Martha Rosler, Michael Isling, Christian Millesoe, Philipphine Hoegen, Erinc Seymen, Borga Kanturk, Kristina Ask, Selda Asal and Vasif Kortun.

In 2010 she made a Video in the Belgrad art-scene. I am very happy about the result and got curious about Belgrade now. And by the way Isidora. Don’t you want to do such a project in Berlin as well?
