In the midst of space, human space, we make our measurements and with these measurements we create space, the space between our instruments. - Michel Houellebecq
The project in several aspects deals with archiving as an artistic method. During the four weeks of our stay at halka art project we will create a growing exhibition using strategies of overlapping, reorganizing and layering corresponding with the organism of the city of Istanbul. The working process is based on analyses of the social, cultural, spatial and esthetic dimensions of the city, including artist talks, screenings and field trips. The program and the growing exhibition involving local and foreign artists will be open to the public. The project phase in Istanbul creates a platform for discussion and intercultural exchange extending a transnational artist network.
The project in several aspects is initiated by:
Antje Feger, Benjamin F. Stumpf, Jana Müller and Emanuel Mathias.
