bi'bak* (Turkish: "take a look") bi'bak deals with socio-politically relevant topics such as migration, mobility discourses, identity constructions, consumer society, cultural memory, focusing on their aesthetic dimensions. The interdisciplinary projects are intended to change the perspective in the current often repetitive debates and to initiate a new discourse. The critical approach to media, globalization and neoliberalism is seen as an important aspect.
bi'bak has a diverse program that includes exhibitions, film screenings, seminars, lectures, workshops, and musical-culinary entertainment evenings. This is to be developed at the interfaces between art, science and popular culture. bi'bak is interested in the development of innovative site-specific mediation concepts that aim at equal participation and the exchange of ideas, knowledge and creativity. bi'bak strives for international cooperation with independent project spaces, actors and institutions, starting from collaborations between Istanbul and Berlin artists and scientists.
