Neighborhod Art, Kutluğ Ataman

Razblint - Kutluğ Ataman - Kuba - Carnegie International - IstanbulitesIn my search for good neighborhood art, there’s Kutluğ Ataman, from the Pittsburgh show a few years back at the Carnegie International.  He’s a Turkish artist-documentarian, and his exhibit at the Carnegie won its main prize.

It was room-large, a gallery full of televisions + earphones, each television with a different person from the same neighborhood, Küba, in Istanbul.  Enough voices + faces + stories to last a month of visits to the Carnegie, I wonder if anyone has actually listened to all of them all the way through.

More from Ataman at his website, The Institute for the Readjustment of Clocks.
