DEMOAUFNAHME(N) is an experimental art outreach program developed by filmmaker and videoartist Branka Pavlovic, ngbk art outreach stipend recipient since 2013/2015. Nezaket Ekici was born in Kırşehir in 1970 and moved to Germany when she was three years old. At the moment she lives and works in Berlin and Stuttgart. She studied painting and sculpture in Munich, then moved into performance art and completed a master’s degree in Performance Art with Marina Abramovic. She has presented her work worldwide in museums, biennales, galleries and festivals; with a total of more than 120 different performances, on 4 continents, more than 100 cities and 30 countries. Her work touches on gender, politics, religion, Turkish-German identity, art history and architecture. The ideas and thoughts generated by these topics form the bases for her artwork. Ekici’s ideas come from the social and cultural aspects of everyday life situations, and are expressed in performances and installations. She uses the body as a means of expression; sometimes, the artistic idea is expressed using the body alone; at other times, the body is used as part of the installation and within the context of a presentation to an audience. Ekici deals with subjects of time, movement, space, material, body, and action/interaction. She tries to create works of art that leave the viewer free to make their own associations and new possibilities.
