Artist, curator – Berlin, Germany
Participant International Forum 2018
Nuray Demir is an artist and curator in the field of visual and performing/performative arts. Her practise is distinguished by a research-based, radically transdisciplinary approach. In her projects, she forms temporary ensembles with people from various fields. She is especially interested in debates and concepts of feminist and postcolonial theory. Nuray Demir’s work is informed by a critical view of social exclusion and complex hierarchical situations; it outlines artistic irritations and counter-positions, formulating a space where social equality can be imagined and empowered. She has realised projects at various institutions, among them Kampnagel in Hamburg, Sophiensaele Berlin, Hebbel am Ufer Berlin and Wiener Festwochen. She also communicates her artistic approach in her teaching, for example at the Berlin University of the Arts.
