At the moment of reading we are setting up a project in Istanbul. In the first phase of the project our focus is on the area of Tarlabasi, loacted just a few steps from the centre and frequently portrayed as ‘most dangerous’, ‘no go area’ and even slum. The general question we attempt to work on is “how visible is the informal”. In the first months our output will be put on the blog informalspaceproduction, which is the platform for our open source group established some months ago.

More information about Tarlabasi will be added soon:
