Online Exhibition Unveiling Central Asia
Inspired by the topic of this year's Symposium, goEast is organising an online presentation of video art from the focus region. In the countries of Kazakhstan, Kirgizstan, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan, video art is firmly established and has developed in leaps and bounds since its first appearance there in the 1990s. In their work, artists like Saodat Ismailova, Sergei Maslov or Surayo Turchinova have repeatedly taken the achievements of their forebears and developed them further. With this video art exhibition, goEast wishes to honour this creative commitment. Curator Yulia Sorokina teaches at the National Art Academy in Almaty and her work has been published in multiple international magazines and catalogues to date.
