rum46 ser frem til at præsentere HERE..THERE..ABROAD - reference point: Turkey - et udstillingsprojekt som er kommet i stand i samarbejde med kurator Fatos Üstek fra Istanbul. HERE..THERE..ABROAD - reference point: Turkey er den overordnede titel på udstillingen, som i denne sammenhæng, præsenterer ca. 8 forskellige videoværker, installation, talks og performances udarbejdet af en række kunstnere, som alle har tilknytning til Tyrkiet: de er måske født der, bor der, har boet der eller blot relaterer sig selv og sit arbejde til Tyrkiet.

HERE..THERE..ABROAD - reference point: Turkey diskuterer forskellige positioneringer i forhold til et 'her' og et 'der'- og giver forslag til mulige ændringer af forståelsen af 'sig selv', den 'anden' og opfattelsen af 'os'.

Udstillingen er kurateret af kurator Fatos Üstek.
De deltagende kunstnere er Asli Sungu, Canan Senol, Erinc Seymen, Esra Ersen, Isil Egrikavuk, Isidora Ficovic, Nevin Aladag, Sefer Memisoglu og Solmaz Shahbazi.

HERE..THERE..ABROAD - reference point: Turkey

Here..There..Abroad.. has been realised as video days in Germany - Stuttgart and Berlin- by the invitation of ifa (Institut Fur Auslandbeziehungen) and have hosted 11 video screenings and a performance by Turkish artists. In rum46, Here..There..Abroad.. will be realised as an exhibition hosting nine positions which relate to each other and to the concept of the exhibition on various levels. rum46 will be hosting six video screenings, an installation by isidora Ficovic, an artist talk by Canan Senol and a performance by Nevin Aladag. All works are in relation to Turkey and socio-political contexts.

Here..There..Abroad.. reference point: Turkey is a group exhibition based on unique presentations of each work and each position. Each work will be shown once - except the solo installation by Isidora Ficovic- and at a particular time.The exhibition is structured around speeches that will be held by the curator and the question and answer sessions after each screening / presentation. The overall structure is formed with the tendency of triggering a possible dialogue of which the concept posits to and of which the issues that will be evoked throughout.

The exhibition is a gathering of various perspectives and standings of artists who are reflecting upon their today. The different positions of the contemporary artists have a sort of correspondence to the space they reflect upon. The artists realize themselves and their productions respectively, as the breadth of interest in space is matched by the breadth of its spatialization. In social theory and post-modern literary criticism, spatial metaphors have become a predominant means by which social life is understood. 'Theoretical spaces' have been explored, mapped, charted, contested, de-colonized, and everyone seems to be 'travelling' under the influence of epochs of simultaneity, juxtaposition, and the places near and far, side-by-side and dispersed. The internationalisation of concepts and discourses has a function of producing closures and distances. The understanding of global in the context of local and the local in relation to global not only produce multiplicities but also lead to singularities in the course of meaning and attribution. Here, there, abroad is a tricothomy of positioning. For to grasp certainty of where one stands, one shall define, where is here or what is abroad. The reference point is not only needed to clarify the geographical position but also enables starting up of a dialogue or discussion. Thus Turkey stands out as the reference of the exhibition. Not as a totality or as a country as such but by the variety of projections upon, towards, out of that specific geographical entity. Therefore, the exhibition is not a representation of a nation but of a selection of representations of today's socio-political, cultural circumstances.

Here..There..Abroad.. aims to underline the permeable borderline between here and there, between there and abroad. A proposal of inter-changeability of structures for a better understanding of the self, of the other and of we... Moreover, Here..There..Abroad will be hosting special projects that will be realised for rum46. Nevin Aladag will realise a performance which will be performed for the first time, Isidora Fcivovic realised a publication for take away that is related to her video piece positioned as an installation.
