BIS Body-Process Arts Association

BIS is an Istanbul based initiative that aims to explore artistic forms of expression at the conjunction of the body and the digital process. It was founded in 2007 as an association by a team of researchers and artists from disciplines such as dance, performance, design, social sciences and engineering. The founders of amber came together in order to create a local discussion and production
platform on art and technology in a globalized World itself transformed by new technologies.

BIS defines its area of interest through the wording of its subtitle. The concept of body-process refers to the inevitable relation between the modern human body and technological processes and tools. Starting from the observation that new technologies increasingly manage practical and critical aspects of our lives such as communication, health and security, this concept orients itself to think about the fluid boundaries between body and technology and the consequences of their interaction. The concept of body-process arts envisages artistic forms that explore, think, embody and question this complex and multifaceted relationship.

BIS’s objective is to establish a permanent center that will focus on the research, production and education in the field of body-process arts in Istanbul. Simultaneously, BIS seeks to create an international network of artists, researchers and technicians with whom it would continue to work and cooperate in a spirit of cooperation and exchange. It thus aims to participate in universal art from a local and regional perspective. amber prioritizes new openings in the field of body-process arts that are brought on by cultural exchange and cooperation projects that also include artists and initiatives that are not part of the Global art circuits.
