Eroding Human Memory

What is Satanic art, what Finnish art is. Who can be named a master, who is a pioneer? And on what grounds? Maurice Halbwachs used the concept of collective memory already in the 1920s. It is not about metaphor, but about the social reality that groups and institutions create, mediate, and strive to maintain. The interpretations of the past do not build on private memory.


Nasan Tur works in an intermediate area between the urban and the gallery space, drawing his material from messages and tensions he finds in the urban environment. He uses the city and its various spaces as a venue for intervention and performance, recruiting local citizens as participants. Some of the projects are on such a large scale that their presentation requires streets to be complemented with gallery or museum spaces.
