In February 2017, we opened our project gallery, called Hybridart Space, at Galamb Street 6. In addition to hosting classic exhibitions in the white cube-type space, we’ve also held design events, book launches, diploma exhibitions, sustainability hackathons, project kick-offs, art dinners and Sunday lunches, and even shot a film once.
According to our knowledge, humans are the only creatures in wildlife who live by consciously chosen principles and ideas. Every creature instinctively aims to survive. Our biological organisms are defensive down to a cellular level. They are constantly fighting to stay alive.
However humans are not only physical but intellectual beings too. We have conscious ideas about the world. These conscious ideas change through time, cultures, countries, religions or even from person to person. Humans are capable of overriding their physical instincts by their principles, sometimes even capable of going against their physical existence with the help of principles.
What are those principles and why would humans even be ready to give up their physical existence for an idea?
The exhibited installation is a monument which examines our relations to the people who died as martyrs.
