“might be that the contemporary economy of art relies more on presence than on more traditional ideas of labor power tied to the production of objects.”
Hito Steyerl, Duty Free Art: Art in the Age of Planetary Civil War

“...one of the main questions for me is in the genre of dealing with real life: how to deal with it formally. There is a standard set of formal expressions that are used in traditional journalism. And some of them are really necessary, like fact-checking. But my conviction is that, now more than ever, real life is much stranger than any fiction one could imagine. So somehow the forms of reporting have to become crazier and stranger, too. Otherwise they are not going to be “documentary” enough, they are not going to live up to what’s happening.”
Hito Steyerl, Art and Contemporary Critical Practice: Reinventing Institutional Critique

“Sanat ortamı, HDMI, CMYK ve LGBT demek: fiyakalı, cilveli ve büyüleyici.”
