Plugin 2016

Dedicated to showcasing artworks at the intersection of science, technology, politics and art, Plugin is now in its 4th year, running alongside Contemporary Istanbul between the 3rd and 6th of November 2016 at the Istanbul Convention and Exhibition Centre (ICC) and Istanbul Lütfi Kırdar International Convention and Exhibition Center (ICEC). 

This year, Plugin takes up the idea of Networked Space not only as a curatorial concept, but also as a mode of artistic production and point of inquiry into our social imaginary and consciousness. The subject of networks is approached as an epistemological question, investigating the structures of our digitized reality to allow for a renegotiation of the relations between physical and cognitive spaces.  Information technologies have triggered economic and societal changes that have led to a radical reorganization of work and production processes as well as of space and communication. Networked Space attempts to offer a multitude of perspectives with regards to signification, materiality and knowledge creation.
