Disobedience Archive (The Park) SALT BEYOGLU, ISTANBUL


An ongoing, multi-phase video archive and platform of discussion that deals with the relationship between artistic practices and political action. The archive is an itinerant and ongoing entity that changes its form and content every time it is exhibited.

 From the street performance Andreottile (Turin, 1977) by Piero Gilardi with Collettivo La Comune 

The Disobedience Archive is an ongoing, multi-phase video archive and platform of discussion that deals with the relationship between artistic practices and political action. The project is an atlas of the plurality of resistance tactics such as direct action, counter-information and biological resistance. By setting in motion different signs and situations, Disobedience is presented as a network of open topics, brought together by artists, activists, film producers, philosophers and political groups.

The archive is an itinerant and ongoing entity that changes its form and content every time it is exhibited. This approach is strongly connected to the flux of contemporary politics and movements, because they can never find a definitive final shape (trade unions, party, parliament etc.) but are always under transformation. The exhibition at SALT Beyoğlu is curated by Marco Scotini and Andris Brinkmanis accordingly, with installation design by Herkes İçin Mimarlık [Architecture for All]. On this occasion the archive will include internationally sourced materials that date from the 1970s Parco Lambro uprising that took place in Italy up until the 2013 Gezi park events in Istanbul.

Disobedience Archive (The Park) at SALT Beyoğlu is a work in progress reflecting on international events as they unfold. Divided into several thematic areas: The Playground, The Park, The Street and The Square, ten of the archive's sections will be presented in İstanbul: "1977 The Italian Exit," "Protesting Capitalist Globalization," "Reclaim the Streets," "Bioresistence and Society of Control," "Argentina Fabrica Social," "Disobedience East," "Disobedience University," "Gender Politics," "The Arab Dissent" and lastly "The Park," which focuses on İstanbul with original contributions by Cem Dinlenmiş, Videoccupy and Herkes için Mimarlık.

İtaatsizlik Arşivi sanat pratikleri ve siyasi hareketler arasındaki ilişkiyi inceleyen çok aşamalı bir video arşivi ve tartışma platformudur. Proje, doğrudan eylem, karşı bilgilendirme ve biyopolitik direniş gibi direniş yöntemlerindeki çoğulluğun bir atlasını çıkarır. İtaatsizlik sanatçılar, aktivistler, film üreticileri, filozoflar ve politik grupların ortaya attığı bir açık tartışmalar ağı olarak sunulur.

Arşiv, her sergilenişinde biçim ve içerik değiştiren, gezgin ve süregiden bir varlıktır. Bu yaklaşım (sendika, parti ve parlamentolarda olduğu gibi) sürekli şekillenmeye ve dönüşmeye devam eden günümüz siyaseti ve hareketlerindeki akış hâline dayanır. SALT Beyoğlu'nda yer alan, küratörlüğünü Marco Scotini ve Andris Brinkmanis'in yaptığı sergi de aynı anlayışla Herkes İçin Mimarlık tarafından tasarlanmıştır. Arşivin bu versiyonu, 1970'lerde İtalya'da yaşanan Parco Lambro ayaklanmasından 2013'teki Gezi Parkı protestolarına dek geçen yıllardan derlenmiş materyalleri içerir.

İtaatsizlik Arşivi'nin farklı versiyonları daha önce Riga Art Space (Letonya); MIT Program in Art, Culture and Technology (ABD); Castello di Rivoli Museum of Contemporary Art (İtalya) ve Bildmuseet, Umeå (İsveç) gibi kurumlarda sergilenmiştir.
