Paratext #57 ft. Katrin Anika Ströbel & Mohammed Laouli, Albert García-Alzórriz, Mustafa Büyükcoşkun, Alba Garcia

This name, Paratext, hides a monthly program of performances by artists in residence at Hangar as well as artists on exchange grants. They present, in different formats, specific projects or parts of their work. The sessions are always open to the public with the purpose of enabling interaction with the artists themselves. Each Paratext also has an editor who will later publish his or her impressions of the presentation on this blog. On this occasion, Kenneth Dow will be the editor.

The next Paratext session will take place on Friday, October 29 at 6 pm in Hangar’s Sala Ricson.

She is currently a resident of La Escocesa, and has resided in other spaces such as Ca la Dona, Homesession and the Kunststiftung Baden-Württemberg (Germany). Her artistic research focuses on the cultural limits that constitute an object as a particular entity independent of the medium and the relational links it establishes with the different material hierarchies. She is interested in the elements that show the interconnection between things and reveal them as dependent. She formalises her research in interdisciplinary installations consisting of a material, organic and transforming part and a discursive or textual part.

He studied history at Bogaziçi University and media arts at Karlsruhe University of Arts and Design. After working as a director and assistant in film, his current practice mediates still and moving images, deconstructing meta-narratives and decolonizing historiographical practices. He is currently working on a project about the soundscapes in Kurdish cinema. His latest film, Set Off, premiered at Ji.hlava IDFF in 2019. At Hangar he’ll look for collective potentialities to open video archives of the 90’s, focusing on the neoliberal transformations and rebellions against, from a transregional perspective.
