Rough Copies/ Kaba Kopya
lunch & talk

Kaba Kopya, meaning ‘rough copies’, takes its title from a description made by a Turkish politician of the academics who had signed the 2016 peace petition, who he called ‘rough copies of academics’. Kaba Kopya is an installation documenting the work of different groups of these academics to create a network of experiments in academia, as a response to being expelled from their jobs and facing ongoing trials. Across the country, academics who have been dismissed from their positions are building ‚Solidarity Academies‘, experiments in pedagogy that question not only the direct crisis they are facing, but the crisis in contemporary academia internationally. The artist Kathryn Hamilton and the academic Aslı Odman will discuss the installation and the ongoing process of its making.
