“‘EarAfter?’ is the name of the loop where we are transforming into a sound in a sole body looking for its ear so much like a ‘two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl’.” (Şevket Akıncı)

It would not be wrong if we describe EarAfter? as a duo odyssey of Şevket Akıncı and Çağrı Erdem where, in fact, concepts like music, freedom, randomness, improvisation, communication and the conceptualism itself are being questioned in a sonic way, such that it met its name upon the questionnaire of Dear Şenol Küçükyıldırım (What does your ear go after?).

What are we?*
What are we entitled to?
Space Debris invites the personas gold, glass, paper, and plastic into the exhibition space for a performative panel discussion as part of Julie Upmeyer’s Face Value – Material Mimicry.
– Sibel Horada was born in Berlin in 1839 as polystrene, an accidental discovery by Eduard Simon; in 1941, she became Styrofoam thanks to the invention of Dow Chemicals.

– Julie Upmeyer always was and always will be, she is beautiful as well as valuable, cherished since the dawn of humanity. She is money, she is jewellery, she is gold.

– Forged by fire, Sine Ergün is glass; clear, strong and infinitely mailable, but don’t drop her, she will shatter into blade-like shards.

– Seyhan Musaoglu is the keeper of much of human knowledge – rollable, foldable, burnable and recyclable, the cloud is no match for her continued presence in daily life. She is paper.

– Serhat Cacekli will referee, the moderator in an epic gathering of historical and contemporary materials.
