ORGANIZATION: Decolonizing Architecture Art Residency
CONTRIBUTION: book design, book production, exhibit design
FUNDED BY: İstanbul Kültür Sanat Vakfı (İKSV)
Decolonizing Architecture Art Residency (DAAR) was invited to exhibit at the 11th Istanbul Art Biennale. We chose to display the five points of DAAR’s research in a large heavy format, appearing like holy books, encased in lead covers, to intrigue people reading academic material and forensic research. The final perception was also influenced by re-using and transforming the benches of an abandoned elementary school, re-opened as an exhibition space for the occasion. Like “a lecture for absentee students”.
