Burak Delier’s political films and installations explore the relationship between capitalism and art, balancing seriousness and wit to critique society in a way that is relevant to Turkey and beyond. The artist took inspiration for the exhibition’s title from the chaotic, anarchic spirit of recent uprisings and protest movements and is interested in the relationship between the idea of freedom and spontaneity, improvisation and creativity. Delier’s subtle and playful works look at the concept of economy and explore the place of ‘power’ in the cultural system, as well as how people can resist the nature of the corporate environment.
