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.

This work is part of the exhibition at Tanas and can be seen till the 28 Nov. in Berlin (Tanas, Heidestraße 50. Tue – Sat 11 a.m – 6 p.m.) www.tanasberlin.de
