Selim Birsel's group exhibition Envy Enmity Embarrassment at Arter

Envy, Enmity, Embarrassment

“Envy, Enmity, Embarrassment” is the second in the exhibition series that focuses on new productions scheduled to take place annually in Arter’s programme. The three terms brought together in the title of the exhibition are used as keywords for expressing social, cultural and political memory within contemporary artistic discourse and initiate an intellectual process resulting in the creation and production of a series of new works. The exhibition aims to explore these three interconnected concepts that precede, follow and complete each other in a broad web of causality, in a wide perspective that incorporates diverse contexts ranging from political and social violence to the media; from careerist concerns and ambitions to gender politics; from potentialities of “friendship” and “solidarity” to “aggressive” and “destructive” drives.
