A group exhibition curated by Barış Seyitvan and Ezgi Bakçay. In cooperation with Gudrun Wallenböck and Franziska Niemand
Characteristics of life on earth transform completely and the sense of belonging is damaged or extinct due to the dynamism of people between geography and culture.
The yearning for a world without restrictions has become a struggle for survival in the form of physical and bureaucratic boundaries. This “rootlessness” triggers creativity in the mould of resistance and expressive forms. How do distance and coordinates, memory and historical perception,
identification and habits, yearnings and hope, encapsulate themselves within artisticexpression? The exhibition ‘Restrictions of the Earth’ engages artists whom first hand have experienced the socio-dynamic shift.
