"Don’t Look Back, Deep is the Past" focuses on the roles and identities assigned to individuals in context of their relationship with society, habits based on social norms and the ways in which we define the other.
“How is the relationship between ideology and iconology? How can we read the genealogy of such mythological themes as golden age, golden generation, charismatic leadership, rebirth, and total salvation, and accompanying visual motifs from the Ancient Age to the present?"
The online workshop is started by Hasan Özgür Top on 7 October.
Protocinema presents A Few In Many Places, a group show which consists of five artist interventions in five cities, hyper-localized and globally interconnected. These artists: Abbas Akhavan in Montreal; Burak Delier in Istanbul; Michelle Lopez in Philadelphia; Stéphanie Saadé in Beirut; and Hasan Özgür Top in Berlin; each address inherited cycles of violence, the breaking of these cycles and rebuilding of ideally healthier systems.
