Iz Oztat accepted to UN Plaza Program

08 Apr

We have been informed by Nanette Yannuzzi-Macias that Oberlin student Iz Oztat (’05) was accepted to the United Nations Plaza program in its Mexico City venue! A highly sought after seminar/art program that began as an offshoot of Manifest 6, then migrated to a year-long event in Berlin, has now been asked to re-create a condensed version of the Berlin experience in Mexico City. Their hosts will be: PAC – a public association that organizes annual conferences on contemporary art, and Casa Refugio – a municipal institution created in the late 60’s to give shelter to persecuted intellectuals from all parts of the world. The program for Mexico City will be a very intensive back-to-back series of short seminars, screenings and performances taking place every day from March 1st to March 30th, including talks and workshops. Seminar and workshop leaders include: Anselm Franke, Liam Gillick, Boris Groys, Nikolaus Hirsch, Chus Martinez, Martha
Rosler, Natascha Sadr Haghighian, Rirkrit Tiravanija, Jalal Toufic, Jan Verwoert and Tirdad Zolghadr, as well as other contributions by Eduardo Abaroa, Julieta Aranda, Fia Backstrom, Regine Basha, Minerva Cuevas, Nico Dockx, Adriana Lara, Damian Ortega, Hila Peleg, Eduardo Sarabia, Angel Nevarez and Valerie Tevere.

Congratulations, Iz!
