Burada ve Başka Yerde: Here and Elsewhere /reassemblage of sprawling landscapesThe Contemporary Disobedient Art Practices from Turkey 10/10/2019–11/11/2019

The exhibition concerns the production of counter-narratives of the image of the political landscape in Turkey. As we experience socio-spatial transformation through oppressive state policies, forced migration, upside-down urban transformation projects in Turkey, this exhibition as a collective process of alternative imaginings indicates how we want to speak up for them “here and elsewhere”. A selection of engaging videos and transmedia works by artists from the Turkish Diaspora and those living in Turkey will be presented; featuring images of civil disobedience and social movements, online archival practices, found footage methodologies and image- and text-based artistic researches.




Sevgi Ortač, Spomenik okrenut naglavce, publikacija, 2010.
“To je neznanje naravno, kako sam mogao da znam da je grob ispod kuće. Odlagali smo ugalj i drva u podrum, ali nikada se ništa nije desilo. Zapravo, muškarci su tu često čistili metlom.
Imao sam samo oko 14 godina. Tada nisu postojale mašine za pranje, pa smo grejali vodu. Želeo sam da operem drveni pod sa preostalom vodom od pranja. Iščetkao sam pod i zatim ga dva puta oprao vodom. Odjednom sam čuo vrisak! Otvorio sam prozor misleći da je stariji čovek na vratima, ali nije bilo nikoga, pogledao sam svuda i ništa. Prislonio sam uvo na pod, o Bože, ide iz zemlje! Istrčao sam vrišteći.
Nakon nekog vremena, moj svekar je došao. Rekao sam mu da je čovek u podrumu i da je ispuštao zvukove poput “uuuh uuuh”. Počeo je da se moli kako je ušao u kuću. Sutradan me je njegova tetka pitala: “Da li si prosuo neku prljavu vodu negde?” Nikada to vise nisam uradio, naravno, ali sam bio poprilično uplašen da nastavim da živim ovde. Na kraju sam se navikao.” Neriman, Mevlankapi (Mevlanakapi-naselje u Istanbulu u kome su vizantijske zidine)
 


Zainteresovana za moć afekta i politiku upravljanja zajedničkim resursima, umetnica Sevgi Ortač u umetničkom i izdavačkom projektu „Spomenik okrenut naglavce“ istanbulske vizantijske zidine posmatra kao odbrambenu strukturu i kao urbani prag naspram pozadine koju čini proces urbane transformacije Istanbula.

Atık Sözlüğü

http://atiksozlugu.net/

Atık Sözlüğü” bir tür ardına bakma, geride bırakılanlara dokunma, eskinin hikayesiyle yeninin kırılganlığını düşünme, dönüşümün doğasında hiç bir şeyin kaybolmayışını heyecanla izlerken nafile notlar tutma; bedenin, aklın, doğanın gündelik hayatta oluşturduğu hiyerarşiyi bir çöp konteynerinde yeniden okuma çabasıdır. Bu çaba ile 2017’de usulca çıkan sözlüğün birinci fasikülünü, 2014 yılından itibaren süren “İstanbul’un Artığı” videolarının ve metinlerinin geri dönüşümü izledi. Halen sözlük, sözlerin ve imajların geri dönüşümünü kurcalamaya, biriken notları vakit buldukça paylaşmaya ya da yayınlamaya devam etmektedir.

Kadıköy Kooperatifi Davetiyle

Biz her gün, gün be gün deneyimlediğimiz, bildiğimiz, arzuladığımız bir süreci kendi ellerimizle dokuyoruz. Örgütlenmeye midelerimizden başlıyoruz. Üretici-tüketici ikiliğini aşmak, üretimin bilgisini ve çeşitliliğini şirketlerin elinden kurtarmak için ihtiyacımız olan gıda ağlarını ve mübadele biçimlerini hemen şimdi örgütlemek zorundayız.

Crafting Neighbourhoods @ Visible Award 2017

Crafting Neighbourhoods is long-listed in Visible Awards 2017  
http://www.visibleproject.org/blog/award/2017-award/asli-kiyak-ingin-sevgi-ortac/

Crafting Neighborhoods emerged as a collaboration in 2010. Aslı teaches design, engaging architecture-design departments and craft ateliers and has been running Made in Şişhane project since 2006. Sevgi is a visual artist, teaches multimedia storytelling and initiates paper or web based platforms. Crafting Neighborhoods took part in Istanbul Design Biennial 2012, VCAS; Projections on Education in 2014, Adhocracy Athens in 2015.

INFO: In Istanbul, craft based production operates within a network structure made of clusters that have formed in various neighbourhoods, mainly in the city centre. Crafting Neighborhoods initiative focuses on these neighbourhoods which are under threat of displacement by current urban policies. It emerged as a need for a common ground for arts, design and craft practices to facilitate collaborative and transformative action and knowledge against top down processes.
Hosting face to face interaction and unmediated design practices, ‘craft neighbourhoods’ challenge not only the social and operational segregation between the craft and design communities but also the producer and consumer dichotomy that dominant economic models are based on. We urge the reconsideration of the means of crafts neighbourhoods in the production of urban space and social networks that facilitate knowledge production and sharing in the rapidly transforming city. Initiating workshops, meetings, exhibitions and publications, we experiment with different methods to create situations where people from different positions, experiences and professions can confront each other in practice. We’ve initiated photography and multimedia storytelling workshops for apprentices in collaboration with local schools; organised workshops where design students work with local craftsman to produce objects for the neighbourhood; held meetings in ateliers of craftsman inviting designers, academics, apprentices, students and local residents to think together and to deepen on subjects and urgencies such as the reproduction of space and heritage, master-apprentice-atelier based education, alternative pedagogies and labour processes.

Food versus the big city of Istanbul @ Farming Matters



f: Uygar Bulut

18 April 2017



Istanbul, like many other cities, is under heavy pressure from urban development projects. In the face of this threat, the DÜRTÜK collective supports small scale farmers in and around Istanbul by organising reliable demand for the produce from urban gardens, and by building a supportive community around them. This initiative not only provides urban residents with local and fairly priced vegetables, but is also a line of defence against the destruction of the city’s historic vegetable gardens and a space of action in Istanbul’s violent, paralysing atmosphere...

Hakim Tepeler / Commanding Heights @ Actopolis


publication, risography print

An informal dictionary for the castle of Mardin that dismantles and rearranges terms and concepts in order to discuss its presense as a cultural heritage and as a military zone. The entries of the dictionary are based on archeological findings, press archives and interviews with residents of Mardin.

The ancient castle of Mardin stands on the highest point overlooking the old city. The castle has been closed to the public and transferred to military use for surveillance over the border territories for decades because of its advantageous location. The restoration of the castle and archaeological excavations have been started under dispute, as local authorities asked for the removal of military services and the NATO radar station left over from the cold
war era situated in the archaeological site of the castle.

Produced in the context of Actopolis, a three-year transnational production lab initiated by Goethe Institut Athens and Urban Kunste Ruhr.

Actopolis. The Exhibition
19/03 - 09/04/17
Oberhausen Alte Post Poststr. 1a
46045 Oberhausen

ACTOPOLIS is a call to action and to co-author the city – across disciplines, national boundaries and cultural differences. Artists, urbanists and activists from Athens, Belgrade, Bucharest, Ankara/Mardin, Oberhausen, Sarajevo and Zagreb joined forces in a three-year transnational production lab to focus awareness on current urban issues, initiate new dialogues and to transform places into playgrounds of what is possible. Throughout 2017 a touring exhibition will stop in eleven cities, providing a space for project presentations, discussions and local additions.
