With its displays in Istanbul at 5533, Amsterdam and Los Angeles “On Produceability” has developed; new works have been produced that we are happy to present in Apartman Projesi, Istanbul. The project is invited to “New Talents” show in Cologne in August and it will be displayed under the name as Berlin Store in autumn 2008 in Germany.
"On Produceability" is an internationally composed and organised groupshow that has its starting point in Istanbul and travels and develops throughout international venues. The project is all about products, production and their placement in society. We invite artists to Istanbul to reflect on and refer to local conditions and global dimensions of production by creating new artworks. With their travel to Istanbul the artists have the possibility and opportunity to use the huge number of large and small manufacturing places. For their artistic purpose they can use this transparency of
production and take advantage of it.
In Istanbul the steps of the production processes are often located in the immediate neighbourhood and become transparent and accessible. They are not externalised like in most service societies like Germany or other EU countries. Manufacturing is still part of the everyday life. While Turkey is a preferred production location of Europe in the context of world industry the parameters are shifting from a production based to a consumption oriented society with overwhelming shopping malls and standardised franchise companies. The rapidity and the simultaneousness of this development creates a situation that is highly vibrant. Our interest is to observe, understand and interfere this state of society being in transission represented by its products.
This project is supported by The British Council, Istanbul; The General Consulate of the Netherlands, Istanbul; Goethe Institut, Istanbul; Kunststiftung Nordrhein Westfalen; WASP t-shirt and Apartman Projesi.
