Vertigo Entrapped V.2
“Vertigo Entrapped” is a compilation of people, cases, segments, and dreams that are forced to live in parallel realities as modes of survival. The formation of such parallel realities acutely depicts a kind of resistance mechanism towards mental occupation. In this respect, the intensity of the pressure of mental occupation –in every possible layer: political, territorial, spatial, psychological, economical, social– complete the creation of a transitory zone remote from a dominating system, but still dependent on it. The dominating system always signifies and produces pressure, excess, and insecurity –as appearing in globalization; through national legacies; with religion; or even in a realm mapped with the immensity of readings of history.
In the second edition, “Vertigo Entrapped” includes works by Hristina Ivanoska, Erhan Muratoglu, Gulsun Karamustafa, and Selda Asal.
