Burak Delier Crisis and control, film still, 2013

Burak Delier: Freedom has no script

  • 26 March — 17 May 2014 *on now

Burak Delier’s political films and installations explore the relationship between capitalism and art, balancing seriousness and wit to critique society in a way that is relevant to Turkey and beyond. The artist took inspiration for the exhibition’s title from the chaotic, anarchic spirit of recent uprisings and protest movements and is interested in the relationship between the idea of freedom and spontaneity, improvisation and creativity. Delier’s subtle and playful works look at the concept of economy and explore the place of ‘power’ in the cultural system, as well as how people can resist the nature of the corporate environment.

Burak Delier, Collectors Wish, 2012

The context for art practice in Turkey - negotiating patronage

  • 8 May 2014 6:30-8pm

This discussion is organised to provide context around and responding to Burak Delier's exhibition at Iniva, Freedom has no script.

Burak Delier's work is acutely political; he questions links between corporate culture and artistic practice, a real concern for artists in Turkey. Like many countries worldwide, Turkey's current artistic boom is funded by private money from banks and large corporations, with no or very limited support for cultural activities from the state. His practice often questions his position as an artist and the difficulties associated with negotiating the politics of this situation.

Admission
