New fellow Ayşe Güngör
A warm welcome to our new fellow Ayşe Güngör who just joined the Kolleg for then next twelve months.
Ayşe Güngör is an art historian with a background in art theory, anthropology and curatorial practices. Her research examines the confluence of art and anthropology in the practices of contemporary artists from Turkey, broadening the frame via narratives of global art and cultural exchange and eco-art practices. She investigates theoretical debates on artistic representation and institutional frameworks.
At global:disconnect, she is investigating the global art discourses embedded in institutionalised contemporary art through the representation of Istanbul in Germany through several exhibitions since 2000. By examining this complex relationship of global interconnectedness, her research seeks to identify gaps and limitations in the globalisation processes of contemporary art from Turkey.
