Burak Arıkan (born in 1976, Istanbul) is a Turkish contemporary artist, who works with network structures and dynamics to explore issues in techno-politics and alternative economics. He takes the obvious social, economical, and political issues of the current capitalist society as an input and run through an abstract machinery, which generates network maps, results in performances, and procreates predictions to make inherent power relationships visible, thus discussable.
