Bal, G., 2023.
Curatorial: Power as the Basis of Right
Participating artists: Heba Y. Amin, Yana Bachynska, Nada Prlja, Isa Rosenberger, Hasan Özgür Top
The Power as the Basis of Right project curated by Gülsen Bal and Walter Seidl addresses a number of complex issues in relation to how a sovereign state or those in power regulate mobility and social conditions which constantly produces states of exclusions of its own in both its national and local constructions in which positionalities and political practices give rise.
The presented video works examine forms of mobility and resistance in order to avoid spaces of existence being taken away and questions its "ability to produce and reproduce not merely oneself but also all the possible alternatives to oneself" as much as to political opposition or movements for social change as the basis of right.
