Ebru Kurbak  
June – August 2024

Ebru Kurbak is an artist from Izmir, Turkey, based in Vienna, Austria. Her practice critically explores the entanglements between art, technology, culture, and power. Her recent work focuses on the implications of the historical social and spatial segregation of knowledges, particularly exploring undervalued textiles knowledge from women’s, indigenous, and nomadic cultures. Ebru is currently Senior Research Fellow at the University of Applied Arts Vienna, leading a four-year arts-based research project entitled “The Museum of Lost Technology,” funded by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF). She also received the LACMA Art + Technology Grant in 2019 and is researching her project “Reinventing the Spindle” with the MIT Media Lab Space Exploration Initiative as her technical advisor.

Ebru has held residencies at renowned art and technology institutions such as La Gaîté Lyrique (Paris), V2_ Lab for the Unstable Media (Rotterdam), LABoral Cultural Center (Gijón), and EYEBEAM (New York). Her work has been exhibited in international venues such as the Ars Electronica Festival (Linz), ZKM (Karlsruhe), Siggraph (US), Microwave Festival (Hong Kong), Istanbul Design Biennial (Istanbul), Piksel Festival (Bergen), and MAK – Museum of Applied Arts Vienna (Vienna), among others.
