Conversation with Erdem Taşdelen
Erdem Taşdelen is a Turkish-Canadian artist who currently lives and works in Toronto. His practice is rooted in conceptualism and involves a range of media, including installation, video, sculpture, sound and artist books. His diverse projects bring structures of power into question within the context of culturally learned behaviours, where he often draws from unique historical narratives to address the complexities of current sociopolitical issues. Last time we met with Erdem right before I moved to London, he was visiting Istanbul. We met in a local wine bar in Taksim and had such a laugh over many memories, and we thought we were going to meet in London since he was invited to a residency at Delfina Foundation, but then well, many things changed. Today this is the first time we had a chat after a year, and we talked about how this last year affected our practices, also his recent exhibition and ongoing works and many other things. Please don't forget to check out the episode notes below for the links mentioned during our conversation.

Conversation with Burong (曾不容)
Today's -filled with irresistible waves of laughter- conversation is with artist Burong (曾不容) on her recent online live performance Non-Taster.

The performance Non-taster (work in progress) is part of the exhibition curated by Giulia Casalini. #WIP is produced by Queer Art Projects with funding from Arts Council England.

"Zér0 Genèse" by Joëlle Pidoux & Sarah Schoderer
"Zér0 Genèse" by Joëlle Pidoux & Sarah Schoderer This podcast is part of the public Programme of Creating a 'we' group exhibition Online video screening - Zér0 Genèse by Sarah Schoderer & Joëlle Pidoux vimeo.com/basis September 8, 2020 "The movie collage "Zér0 Genèse“ deals with gender roles and calls into question the norms our society built from them. The video materials are composed of a self-shooting and videos of the Internet. We created a kind of music video clip with different interviews of women, who are mostly talking about women, sexuality, gender identity and culture. The clip of the Celtic ritual of "queimada”– an alcoholic beverage in Galicia – runs like a red thread through the video collage and subtly sets the pace of the video - the Celts are known for their matriarchal society. The whole structure is roughly like a "news feed" as in Facebook. Our film tells a story. It is the story from different perspectives of the diversity of our present and past."

Conversation with Anna-Lena Werner
Anna-Lena Werner is one of the most inspirational women that lead our collective's way and interpose our dark thoughts whenever necessary in the most magical way. She is a dear friend, a curator, a writer and an art historian, currently living and working in Berlin. Having studied art history, theatre studies (Freie Universität Berlin) and art theory (Chelsea College of Art and Design, London), she completed her PhD in 2019 at Freie Universität Berlin with the study "Let Them Haunt Us. How Contemporary Aesthetics Challenge Trauma as the Unrepresentable" (transcript, Bielefeld 2020). We started our conversation from the day we met in Istanbul and how it leads us to collaborate until today through collective exhibitions, and talked about her journey with the online art platform artfridge, on trauma and its representations in contemporary art and friendship. Please see more about her book and all her other project in this podcast's info sheet. Enjoy!  Correction: 13th Istanbul Biennial we referred in the conversation took place in 2013, not 2014.

Conversation with Ogulcan Ekiz
Breaking a world record of saying "copyright" a thousand times in one podcast - come on in! How to pronounce DAOs? What happens when a judge decides what art is? We talked about conjunctions where art and law meet and dines while mentioning the future of copyright/s.

One Afternoon with HazMatLab (Sandra Havlicek, Tina Kohlmann and Katharina Schücke)
Sandra Havlicek, Tina Kohlmann and Katharina Schücke are three artists who join their expertise to practice as a dynamic trio. Triangulation is a developmental step which they continuously try to engage in and which requires the flexibility and ability to permanently change roles and perspectives in the rotating triad. This process generates surprise, fun and complexity in conceptual thinking and artistic production. Because three minds engage in the depth of decision making, the process opens up for multilayered facets of developing an idea, approaching it’s concept and producing it’s body. Each experimentation system is specific, improvised and grounded in an elementary matter in it’s time. One afternoon in April 2020 we met with HazMatLab collective for an online nail art session. To learn more about HazMatLab and their work - https://www.hazmatlab.org/Follow HazMatLab at https://www.instagram.com/hazmatlab/Follow Collective Çukurcuma at https://www.instagram.com/collectivecukurcuma/Some links which may be useful:Our upcoming group exhibition: Creating a ‘we’ - https://vimeo.com/382397972HazMatLab De Formal interview: https://www.deformal.com/interviews/2017/8/10/interview-with-hazmatlabBasis Frankfurt: http://basis-frankfurt.de/Artfridge interview: http://www.artfridge.de/2019/04/interview-hazmatlab.html
