Counter Attackt Radio Show
2010 Taipei Biennial
Burak Delier is an artist based in Istanbul.
For the Taipei Biennial 2008 - cf. the TB08 Revisited series p.11 (ref TB10 Guidebook) - the artist engaged with Shijou Tribe settelments on the Sindian River that are threatened b y demolition plans justified by "typhoon flooding". Near the area is a golf course, situated at an even lover water level than the Shijou settlement. As ever, "urban renewal" is synonymous with the aims of real estate development. With the help of students, activists, members of the Shijou community and other tirbes, Delier installed a huge banner over the condemned houses bearing the simple message "We Will Win". For TB10, Delier directed his attention toward the stratified workings of the art institution itself, and surveying everyone from interns to policy decision-makers on the potential for critical art and what it should entailed. Exhibited in the show are the material results of this survey and of a collaborative workshop that followed.
