Baran Çağinli, born in Istanbul in 1990, is a contemporary artist currently based in Ankara. His art brings together several disciplines and societal themes. Addressing governmental/civic relations and related conflicts of power, identity issues such as ethnic discrimination, forced migration and forced disappearances, his work tests the limits of the possible in a repressive society.

The objects and people included and used in his works are often witnesses to an incident. Although these witnesses are shown within their local contexts, they also represent those in other geographical areas living under different regimes.

Baran was the first AR-Resident to be hosted by Sareen Kartano/Saasatmoinen Foundation residence program. His was part of the AR-Pavilion COLLATERAL II in Madrid in October 2017. The work of his further residencies will come to fruition and be exhibited in 2018/2019. He is also working on a project with PM’s PLURIversity, funded by the Kone Foundation.

Baran Çağinli was a resident of the AR-Saari Residence/Saastamoinen Foundation in 2017 is currently resident at AR-Safe Haven Helsinki, co-hosted by Perpetuum Mobile (PM) and HIAP and funded by the City of Helsinki.

The AR Secretariat is generously funded by Koneen Säätiö – Kone Foundation.
