Madrassa collective. On Fail[l]ed Tales and Ta[y]lors

Saturday, 9 November 2019 > Sunday, 16 February 2020

On Fail[l]ed Tales and Ta[y]lors adopts inefficiency, exhaustion, incompleteness, error and failure as conceptual and methodological frameworks, and as aesthetic and political principles, by inviting artists and collectives whose projects aim to challenge dominant standards within and beyond the arts.
The exhibition gathers artistic proposals that use the above-mentioned concepts as the catalyst of their practice to explore the past and present potentials of utopic making and unmaking. Mainly based on cross-disciplinary research, long-term collaborative processes and experimental productions, moreover, the works presented raise questions about the meaning of creation itself and the processes that it is doomed to go through within art and its institutions.  
Based on a residency and on a seminar given at Tabakalera in 2018, On Fail[l]ed Tales and Ta[y]lors expands the reflection on collective making that Madrassa Collective started in 2015 and which was materialised in the exhibition Something to Generate From in 2016 at the Kunsthal Aarhus. Madrassa explores collaborative forms and collective artistic practices that, operating across a variety of fields and emerging from diverse epistemic worlds, embody the possibility for instituting new practices, spaces and times. The curatorial body engages in exhibitions as spaces capable of giving voice to these collective forms, and as the very times in which new notions of the collective come to form.
Participants in the exhibition:
  • Ala Younis 
  • Grupo Etcetera 
  • Oda Projesi 
  • Sofiane Zouggar 
  • Suspended Spaces 
  • Yasmina Reggad

Zero Point,
Oda Projesi, İstanbul, 2019

İstanbul: The zero point of the universe. This city is both the reason and the object of a last exhibition in the world. Recently, we are witnessing how the city is still an amorph organism but also nowadays it is very much tried to be shaped, organized and structured. Before, the city was more visible and open; nowadays most of the city is veiled with metal walls and this is all one could see. “The last” is a word hard to visualize, we go after “hope” once we talk about “the last”; near the salty water there in the concrete one can see the flourishing green; the wild nature. We are experiencing the harsh destruction of the city; but still the seed is on the street, in the balcony pot, in the cracks of the buildings; resistant and wild. The Milion was the center of the Earth and the mile marker in Constantinople; probably dating to the reign of Constantine (d. 337), it played a role in reinforcing the Romanitas of the new capital, as it was modeled on the Miliarium Aureum in old Rome. The Milion originally marked the start of all roads throughout the empire, symbolically evoked the entire Roman world and Constantinople’s place in it.
