BOOK PRESENTATION: CEVDET EREK, ROOM OF RHYTHMS 1
Free with dOCUMENTA (13) ticket.
Presented by Cevdet Erek and Övül Durmuşoğlu
Part of an ongoing exploration, “Room of Rhythms 1″ is based on a conversation between Cevdet Erek and Duygu Demir that reflects on themes of sound, architecture, rhythm, measured time, dance music and site-specificity. The book that marks the first volume of this process provides an insight into Cevdet Erek’s practice as an artist, summing up the artistic research that led to “Room of Rhythms”, an experiential installation presented at dOCUMENTA (13). The artist invites the audience to his installation after the presentation.

Erek will use the format of the lecture to offer insight into his artistic practice and will illustrate examples of other earlier and current work through a live mix.
The talk will be followed by questions from the audience and there will be time for refreshments and further discussion after the talk.
The exhibition entitled Week by Cevdet Erek can be visited at Kunsthalle until March 18.
