bi’bak (Turkish: have a look) is a project space based in Berlin, with a focus on transnational narratives, migration, global mobility and their aesthetic dimensions. bi’bak’s programme examines diverse disciplines in art, academics, and community development, including film screenings, exhibitions, workshops as well as music events and culinary excursions.
bi'bak is a non-profit organization founded in 2014 by the artists and curators Malve Lippmann and Can Sungu. The curated film programme, bi'bakino, as well as the audio programme bi'bakaudio aims to show transnational, postcolonial and postmigrant perspectives. Experts invited from the fields of art, film and academics will enable a more differentiated, non-eurocentric view of society and cultural history. bi'baxchange offers a platform for cultural actors and projects, initiating cross-border collaborations. bi'bakwerk works with innovative concepts for art education, which aim for an equal participation and the exchange of ideas, knowledge and creativity. bi'bak's research-based exhibitions focus on widely neglected narratives and perspectives that are crucial for a comprehensive understanding of socio-political and socio-economic contexts worldwide. bi'bak was awarded by the Berlin Senate for Culture and Europe for its project space in 2017 and 2020.
From September 2020 on, bi'bak will start a cinema-experiment at Haus der Statistik at Berlin-Alexanderplatz which examines cinema as a space for social discourse, as a place for exchange and solidarity.
