ZOZAN Explorations on Mobility through Multimedia Documentations, Art Interventions, Art-based Research and (Re)Presentation

Do, 15.12.2022, 18:30
The ZOZAN project organizes a workshop with artist Rojda Tuğrul, taking two comprehensive multimedia collections on Kurdish societies, the Werner Finke Collection and the Mehmet Emir Collection, as a starting point.
ZOZAN combines three thematic areas, namely past and present mobility/ies of Kurds, art production and representation in transnational spaces. Artistic interventions include workshops with a selected audience. 
“Identity is not given, but rather performed … identity is a phenomenal matter …  multiple within itself … marked by diffraction/différence/differing/deferring/differentiating … an infinite flow of matters.
But how can we grasp this fluidity, the processual, the constant negotiation?” 
The artist proposes to think about certain relationalities, disparities and entanglements in and through our body via our senses. Drawing herein is a method to grasp dynamics of difference, alterity, belonging and becoming. Drawings, photos, texts, oral history, video and audio recordings, etc. can contribute to a Re-Animating process, which draws attention to social and political consequences at a particular time. Re-Animation is a journey between the past and the present, which allows to trace relationalities and temporalities. 
All necessary materials are provided for this purpose. The results will be presented in the form of a brochure and an exhibition.
