awhām issue #3 / Digital Edition
Issue #3 theme is “Artists’ Critique.” Art and culture have always been powerful tools mobilized by oppressive regimes to whitewash its crimes and to enforce their agendas. The commodification of art and the value created around it promotes self-censorship and adaptation for the sake of selling, being granted funding, or receiving prizes. In capitalist realism, is there a space left for artists’ critique? If yes, in what form? And how does it survive?
Our 3rd issue features Anadol, Akdar, Aude Nasr, Caner Yılmaz, Deniz Örs, Firas Shehadeh, Iskandar Ahmad Abdalla, Lexi Sun, Janset Genel, Ozan Tekin, Rami Shalati, Shahd Abusalama, Thoom, Yehudit Yinhar, Yelta Köm, Zeynep Yesim Ozkanca
