“I Occupy,” the new exhibition at Kasa Gallery (Istanbul) in collaboration with the Museum of Contemporary Cuts surveys, analyzes and questions, current trends in interventionist and Augmented Reality Art which, by intervening within the urban and socio-political landscape, contribute to redefine the aesthetic and cultural understanding of the environments we operate in.
The exhibition “ I Occupy” will be prefaced by the text “Why I Occupy” by Nicholas Mirzoeff, scholar at NYU Steinhardt, and will showcase the ARworks – actual live interventions, and documents of past events during Occupy in Wall Street – by artists Mark Skwarek (the organizer of the AR events), John Craig Freeman, Will Pappenheimer, and Tamiko Thiel.
