CITY AS HOME

City As Home is an ongoing project which deals with the concept of “home” and its reflections, interpretations and borders within the public space. After the previous three exhibitions in Diyarbakır (TR), Usti nad Labem (CZ) and Tallinn (EE), the project’s fourth round will take place in bi’bak. In a one-week workshop, the participants from Turkey and Europe will work on various associations of home and the perceptions of home in the sociopolitical context. Inspired by the discussions, excursions and exchange during the workshop, the participants will develop artistic interventions in the public space and share the outcome of the workshop in a presentation at bi’bak.
