Aslı Serbest and Mona Mahall | September 2020
Aslı Serbest and Mona Mahall work together on the border between art and architecture. In analog and digital media, in installations, models, videos, and texts, they investigate the poetic and political possibilities of space and spatial conception. Their projects follow a feminist methodology and formulate not so much stipulations as non-linear and non- lockable versions of a form. Serbest/Mahall have exhibited and published internationally, including at the Biennale di Venezia, Württembergischer Kunstverein Stuttgart, Riverrun Istanbul, Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich, Storefront for Art and Architecture, New York, House of World Cultures, Berlin, Vancouver Art Gallery, Künstlerhaus Stuttgart, New Museum, New York, and in e-flux journal, Volume Magazine, Perspecta, and Istanbul Art News. They are the editors of Junk Jet magazine. In 2019 they curated the 7th International Sinop Biennale under the title A Politics of Location. They live and work in Berlin.
Aslı Serbest and Mona Mahall were scholars at Tarabya Cultural Academy from February to May and September 2020.
