Istanbul Biennial 10: Nightcomers
CALL: VIDEOS FOR 10th ISTANBUL BIENNALE
Nightcomers is one of the night programme projects of the 10th International Istanbul Biennial, perhaps the most somnambulist. The conceptual structure of the project was based on the concept of “dazibao” used by Hou Hanru in reference to wall-mounted posters produced by the public during the Chinese Revolution.
The “nightcomers” project aims to build a strong communication and relationship with its viewer and invites everyone taking part in the project as producer-viewer to share its name. To go out at night, to share the street and to hear one’s own voice en masse…
“Nightcomers hang out on street corners. They seek their own justice. You feel their breath on your neck. Sleepless – a gang of ghosts.”
