Critical initiatives


Critical initiatives in and around art and politics are created mostly by Istanbul based and globally connected digitally literate artists, a few collectives, and small institutions. Because of the lack of financial support from cultural foundations and the government, artists often do day work and utilize their surplus energy and intellect to make art and do research. They participate in the new media- focused group exhibitions, creative programming and networking workshops, multi-disciplinary discussion panels, gatherings and street actions organized through email lists and social network services.
