GUEST TUTORS OVUL DURMUSOGLU
"Övül Ö. Durmusoglu is a curator and writer living in Berlin. Her interests lie in the intersection of contemporary art, politics, critical and gender theory and popular culture. As a curator, she acts between exhibition making and public programming, singular languages and collective energies, material and immaterial abstractions, worldly immersions and political cosmologies. Currently, Durmusoglu is a guest curator and advisor to the newly established MMAG Foundation in Amman. In the past, she was curator for steirischer herbst festival in Graz; curator/director for YAMA public screen in Istanbul; curatorial advisor for Gülsün Karamustafa’s ‘Chronographia' at Hamburger Bahnhof, artistic director for the festival Sofia Contemporary 2013 titled as 'Near, Closer, Together: Exercises for a Common Ground’. She curated programs within 10th, 13th and 14th Istanbul Biennials; coordinated and organized different programs and events at Maybe Education and Public Programs for dOCUMENTA (13). She has taught in Nuremberg Academy of Fine Arts, Linz University of Arts and Muthesius Arts University in Kiel. With her writing she contributes to different publications, online platforms and magazines such as Texte zur Kunst and Frieze.”
