Project Intern (Berlin & Istanbul)
Who We Are
bi’bak is a non-profit association for contemporary art and community-based projects that runs an independent project space in Berlin-Wedding. Our program intersects the diverse disciplines of art, science and community development including film screenings, exhibitions, workshops as well as music events and culinary excursions.
bi’bak puts a focus on issues such as migration and mobilities, and highlights their aesthetic dimensions. We engage with a variety of sociopolitical issues such as migration, discourses on mobility, the construction of identities, labor questions, and cultural memory. Interdisciplinary projects offer alternative perspectives and initiate new discourses on pressing debates that all too often seem unsolvable and intransigent.
