bibaxchange #09 presents two selected works of the project İŞ-PORTA – A Mobile Cart For The Neighborhood.

Within the project the selected artists from Turkey and Germany developed two site-specific works, which function as vending carts in the neighbourhood and allow interactions within the local community. Sankt Urban Berlin (Drohsel/ Krebs/ Strombach) have developed ARBEITS-Pazar – a mobile employment agency for refugees and the local craftsmen in Soldiner Kiez (Berlin). The Turkish artists Uygar Demoğlu and Çağın Kaya were mobile in the streets of Sinop (Turkey) with their video vehicle. Both works in Berlin and Sinop will be presented by the artists at bibaxchange #09. A second exhibition will take place in Sinop within the scope of the 6th Sinopale – International Sinop Biennale in July 2016.

İŞ-PORTA is a participatory project developed by Sinop Sustainable Development Association (Sinop/Turkey) and bi’bak (Berlin/ Germany) and is supported by TANDEM Cultural Managers Exchange Turkey-EU.

*TANDEM – Cultural Managers Exchange Turkey – EU is an initiative of the European Cultural Foundation (Amsterdam), MitOst (Berlin), Anadolu Kültür (Istanbul), and supported by Stiftung Mercator (Essen).
