Antinomy is an artistic duo by Chong-ha Peter Lee & Ozan Atalan that is co-organizing discussions and producing exhibitions within the Neganthropocene Summit and the Amasian Biennale.

Both events synthesize new concepts from physics, philosophy and sociology to produce a flexible platform for dialogue and an accessible toolbox for antifascism.

Components of the work are currently installed in Istanbul, 2022. Ozan Atalan and Chong-ha Peter Lee have been collaborating theoretically and practically since 2016 in different locations.

The duo criticizes the romanticizing yet insoluble terms of the Anthropocene's current formulation of ecological destruction by anchoring its core engine in 1980's neoliberal military interventions and socioeconomic legal policies which result in a culture that otherizes and commodifies the vulnerable and the nonhuman.
