Based in Berlin, Mona Mahall and Asli Serbest have been working as a collective since 2007. In their research-based practice they reflect and produce space through various media: installations, scenographies, exhibitions, architectures, as well as (video-)texts, concepts, and publications. Their collective projects are explorations of particular past, present, and future contexts; they aim at understanding and negotiating the evolving relationship between architecture, art, and the political.
They exhibit and publish internationally, among others at Biennale di Venezia, 2012, 2014, 2019; Württembergische Kunstverein Stuttgart, 2015, 2018; Riverrun Istanbul, 2018; Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich, 2017; Storefront for Art and Architecture, New York, 2014, 2015; HKW, Berlin, 2012; Vancouver Art Gallery, 2013; Künstlerhaus Stuttgart, 2013; New Museum, New York, 2009; in e-flux journal, Volume Magazine, Perspecta, The Gradient–Walker Art Center, AArchitecture, Deutschlandfunk, etc.
