TOP Project Space is excited to present its latest talk series, “Perspectives: Stories Untold.” Designed with a global focus, this series showcases the work of artists and scholars. We’re kicking things off by welcoming researchers Dr. Emrah Işık and Yasin Acar from Batman University, Turkey. They will be shedding light on their current research in Kurdish literature.
Join us as Dr. Emrah Işık explores “Memory, Storytelling and the Dengbêj Tradition,” and Yasin Acar delves into “Mem û Zîn – Kurdish Love Epic: A Queer Interpretation.” The presentations, each lasting 20-30 minutes, will create a conducive atmosphere for friendly conversations and thematic interest at the TOP Project Space in Tempelhof.
The “Perspectives: Stories Untold” series aims to give voice to the unspoken, through an exploration of decolonial perspectives and queer and feminist approaches. Artists, scholars, and creative workers get an opportunity to introduce a topic and provide insight into their background, interests, and previous work. Join us as we uncover the untold narratives waiting to be shared.
The exhibition with a public program of presentation and discussion consists of practices and research on epistemic injustice and forms of engagement of decolonial premises around the landscapes and struggles of the northern Tigris river in Turkey. The exhibition and public program present the collective works of de/archiving of seeds, video-essays, ecological mourning on the more-than-human world of Tigris, voices and lands of eco-feminist practices, counter-narratives against hegemonized knowledge of local communities, and disobedient rituals against subjugated landscapes.
In TOP Presents no. 3 Sara Reichert (TU Berlin) and Christina Sarli (Ai Dada) will present their lives and work alongside a mushroom dinner. The presentation format (20-30 minutes) and discussion are designed to provide a low-key environment for friendly conversation, thematic interest and an evening of drinks and food at the TOP project space in Tempelhof.
