Proto5533: After Alexandria, the Flood
Recai Mehmed Efendi Library, 2016
Curator: Naz Cuguoğlu
Proto5533 presents After Alexandria, the Flood with Jorge Mendez Blake, Ekin Bernay,
Eşref Yıldırım, Meriç Algün Ringborg, and Sultan Burcu Demir, curated by Naz
Cuguoğlu, which explores how the knowledge gets organized, controlled and absorbed
in the current information overload of digital and non-digital libraries.
Performance invites the audience on a performative journey, taking different routes
through library books, questioning interpretation of stories using human inventions like
language in a world where the information is under control and writing exists for its own sake.
