The “Mis(s)placed Women?” is a 4-days-long performance art workshop with Tanja Ostojić.
The art project will take place from 7th to 9th September, in a variety of public spaces in Istanbul. Organized by international performance art platform Performistanbul in collaboration with Tarabya Cultural Academy. The outcomes of the workshop will be presented to the public, two weeks later in the Beykoz Kundura Cinema.
The workshop will focus on the exploration of the Live Art practices and methodologies in relation to the individual experiences of displacement. Participants are invited and encouraged to share and exchange experiences and issues of marginalisation, displacement, exposure and privilege. Those performances continue themes of migration, and relations of power and vulnerability with regard to the mobile and in particular the female body.
Participants of all backgrounds and genders that can commit to participate for the entire duration of the workshop are welcome. We welcome people with any kind of special needs. Applicants are kindly asked to complete the application form or to send an e-mail to email@example.com with one short motivational and biographical paragraph. The deadline for application is August 31th 2021.
The artist is currently artist in residence of the Tarabya Cultural Academy until the end of September 2021.
Tarabya Cultural Academy is an institution of the German Federal Government. It is run by the German Embassy in Ankara and is one of the cultural activities of the German Embassy in Turkey. The aim is to make a contribution to the German-Turkish cultural exchange. The stay at Tarabya is intended to provide residents with inspiration and the opportunity to develop their work further.
The title, Palimpsest, originally denotes a piece of writing material on which the original writing has been erased to make room for later writing.
However, traces of the overwritten texts remain.
This paleographic phenomenon will inspire the artists of the Mahalla Festival 2022. They will be concerned with the use of resources in a
comprehensive way: in terms of ecological, economic, political, social and communal memory culture.
