Can one stroll through a novel? In the exhibition Mulch Sleep, Baha Görkem Yalım (DAI, 2018) ( artist, educator and dear member of DAI's crew ~ as so many of you know) introduces you to the exhibition-novel, a form of wordless writing. Language has an undeniable influence on our perception. It dictates our reading of the world. Dominant narratives come with a history of oppression, hierarchy, and inequality. Yalım’s exploration of what language can be subverts these overpowering narratives using only two tools: autofiction and sleep. In doing so, Yalım tells a shared story that is also highly personal. Mulch Sleep is an exhibition that dozes off, creating an in-between world to dream anew. Among sculptural works, videos, sounds and installations that poetically combine a sense of estrangement and familiarity, comfort and sterility, visitors join a slumbering presence. Will you dream with it? DAI community welcome at the opening at "1646" in The Hague on Saturday 11 November, 2023 from 15:00 to 18:00 !
SIGN THE PETITION TO STOP SYRIAN WAR CRIMINAL ASSAD ATTENDING THE COP 28 CLIMATE CONFERENCE !!! To the United Arab Emirates, host of COP 28, and all member states of the United Nations ~ Brutal dictator Bashar al-Assad must be held to account for crimes against humanity, not given a platform to greenwash the Syrian regime’s atrocities at the world’s climate conference ~ his first international conference since 2011 ~ Inviting Assad sends a clear message to all war criminals that impunity is the rule of law. We call on the host of COP 28, the United Arab Emirates, to uninvite Assad and we urge all UN member states to oppose the Syrian regime attending COP.
"If only our timelines could be replaced by timedials, in a metaphorical coding sense, could social media platforms generate more recursive, less-linear experiences? If this is asking (or expecting too) much from the US centric corporate owned platforms, then could a tonic, the tonic to go with the Djinn of the social media feed, be the parallel readings of Palestinian historians, writer and poets who invite us to longer term conjectures and durations?" From "TIMELINE PALESTINE" by Harun Morrison ( DAI, 2020). Read the full text as published by NERO's Giulia Crispiani (DAI, 2017) under the link.
