In this conversation, where artist and academician İnci Eviner and academician and architect Ezgi Tuncer will reflect on daily life, flows and rhythms based on moving images that increase the possibilities of spatial representation, they will once again push the boundaries of the disciplinary structures that produce political space.
Eviner's video works titled "Nursing the Modern Fall" and "National Fitness", in which he produces the strange states of modern architecture that strives to discipline space and the body, will be instrumental in discussing the biopolitics of architecture.
The event can be followed on zoom and will be broadcast live on KHAS Youtube channel. The event will be in Turkish.
