The exhibition MOMENT.MOVEMENT that is part of the event Gezi – before and after – 2013 – 2016 is a collective project of artists from various countries, searching for a politically-informed artistic and emancipatory future. It reflects something past as something possible, opens a crack in what has not been thought or what has yet to be thought. Condensing movement into an intensive moment leads to a division on various levels.

The goal of these resistance movements is their liberation from the state and its relations. Preserving the singularity of resistance movements, the works question structures, penetrate meanings and shift the boundaries of possible readings. This results in drawing lines connected to political events on one side, or, reaching the point creating a differentiated view on what is happening on the other. The works refer to spaces of resistance, which can also be changed through liberated art forms.
