"Bora Akıncıtürk liberates the spectator from the former sometimes totalitarian boundaries of art’s traditional practice, theory and history. We cannot “read” his works, as reading expects a linear system, syntax and meaning. We observe, think, deconstruct and experience his works. So in the end, the artist liberates us from our passive role of being an observer, and puts us in the position to become an active participator. This participatory character of his work is one of its most remarkable issues, as it fights against today’s common laziness and passivity, which is subversively promoted by the media and the capital."
