<nettime-ann> [ann] Territories of Duration - exhibition ANNOUNCEMENT


          Following on a pace from the exhibition where it was, shall I be
which took place in September 2005 at Keçiburcu in Diyarbakýr, inquiring
that invites for a reply on how Europe is European but also how does one
create ones own space, this new group exhibition territories of Duration
continues to explore the issues by questioning ?difference of identity?
and ?difference? which inhibits transitional interactions, and therefore
it aims to create a cross-border communication dialogue at ?existential
territorial? boundaries within an interdisciplinary artistic approach. 

  For this group exhibition, Cengiz Tekin, Dilek Winchester, Elena
Cologni, Genco Gülan, Karl Ingar Røys, Nasan Tur, Shezad Dawood, Sophia
Kosmaoglou and Turan Aksoy have been invited to present works addressing
the questions of new European space.
  The project curator Gülsen Bal brings forward artist responses by
asking where do ?borders? and ?in-between spaces? relative to the
?inside? and ?outside? inter-connect in the context of a Europe and its
borders, specifically the new the fortress Europe (Festung Europa) which 
has walls of concrete significance, marks a rupture with a Europe to come.

  The issues subsequently will cover the differential structures in
representational boundaries as well as some complementary ideas,
including the border in its essential paradox as it often characterized
by affinity to the relation between ?here? and ?there,? between ?us? and
?them,? between ?city? and ?country.? This touches not only our political
borders, but also the borders with an external world particularly in
relation to the material, the geographic object called ?Terre? (Erde)
with its existence to the ambivalent articulation. 

In this context territories of Duration will explore the temporary
mediation systems with its practical ramifications in a way that it will
simultaneously open up a range of fields of possibility on different
scenarios where the new ways of being in the world are re-read to follow
unfamiliar routes and cross trans-local and/or trans-national boundaries
in re-locating European space, which is firmly rooted in the daily life.
Amidst such transgressions, there emerges at the edges of
inter-disciplinarity and critical modalities.
