Oda Projesi and Erdoğan Yıldız
2. Floor

Oda Projesi [Room Project] is an artist collective initiated by Özge Açıkkol, Güneş Savaş and Seçil Yersel. Formed in an apartment in İstanbul’s Galata neighborhood, Oda Projesi invited artists and people of different disciplines, including residents of Galata, to form projects together. In 2005, Oda Projesi left its space in Galata; it now focuses on the different ways urban spaces can be used, their transformations, modes of communication, and potentials. In addition to real spaces, Oda Projesi’s works include radio, books, postcards and magazines. Erdoğan Yıldız has been a resident of Gülsuyu-Gülensu Mahallesi for 28 years, throughout which he has participated in various urban hostility movements.

The talk will be held in Turkish.
