In collaboration with the cultural institution Salt, Istanbul, the Kunstverein in Hamburg presents the exhibition The 90s Onstage, with extensive German, English and Turkish language program. The exhibition The 90s Onstage consists of interwoven formats and approaches that put a variety of media – visual art, performance, television, theater, painting, music videos, talk shows and installation, elements of stage design – from the 1990s in Turkey into dialogue. The decade is characterized by political upheaval, rigorous austerity policies, private television, and newly emerging forms of the interdisciplinary. As a consequence, artists begin to explore a variety of themes, taking new approaches to public space, freedom, protest, and challenge cultures of remembrance. In this changing public sphere new stages emerge, generating reality anew.
