Is it possible, that someone is living in Istanbul and has never seen the Bosporus? It is, as the artist Esra Ersen found out. So she invited women, who had never seen the Bosporus, to a tour which she was filming. The videoinstallation “Passengers” shows on one screen their journey to the Bosporus and on a second the neighborhood they come from. Esra Ersen is analyzing the relationship between a town and its residents in lots of her art works.
