Ali Kazma

Ali Kazma is a lens-based media artist living and working in Istanbul and Paris. Questioning social organization and the value of human activity, his works highlight the relationship between the visible and the invisible aspects of reality by looking closely at the management of labor, time, bodies, gestures, space and processes. He has an interest in spaces of social significance, places of production, in industries and handicraft, as well as in the details of machinery and ritualistic, repetitive daily tasks. 

Having completed his BA in the University of Colorado at Boulder and received his MA from The New School University in New York City, Ali Kazma represented Turkey at the 55th Venice Biennale - Pavilion of Turkey in 2013, had a comprehensive solo exhibition at Jeu de Paume, Paris in 2017. He has received the UNESCO Prize for Promotion of the Arts in 2001 and the Nam June Paik Award in 2010. The artist’s works have been included in a number of institutional collections such as CNAP (Paris), Istanbul Modern, MEP (Paris), Tate Modern (London), and TBA21 (Vienna).
