TALK WITH KEVSER GÜLER & SCREENING PROGRAM BY BIRBUÇUK

As part of ACROSS #22 in Nice, Kevser Güler will give a talk about her curatorial practice, including her curatorial experience within the Istanbul Biennial team, and as an associate curator of Cappadox Festival 2017 in Turkey, among other projects.
She will then present, in collaboration with birbuçuk, a screening program that brings together a selection of videos and documentaries focusing on the contemporary ways nature is related to and the need to rethink within it today while anticipating new forms of subjectivities.
The screening program includes videos by artists Annika Eriksson, Elmas Deniz, Jürgen Nefzger, Kerem Ozan Bayraktar and Nigol Bezjian.
