Discussion with Ali Kazma and Jean-Michel Frodon

Le 17 October 2017

Ali Kazma’s work raises fundamental questions about human activity in economic, industrial, scientific, medical, social, and artistic spheres. Each video outlines a different facet of his on-going study of the ways in which our contemporary world changes, constituting an immense archive on the human condition. Ali Kazma is interested in creating works that add to the complexity and enigma of the world, in creating spaces with the potential to open up and instigate aesthetic and ethical discourse on a range of interconnected topics.

Ali Kazma (1971) was born in Istanbul, graduated from the New School, New York, in 1998 and has been living in Istanbul since 2000. He works with lensbased media. All over the world, he investigates situation, places and structures relating to man’s ability to transform the world.

Jean-Michel Frodon is film critic, writer and teacher at Sciences Po Paris.
