The third of SALT's Working Groups is initiated by the artist collective Oda Projesi (Özge Açıkkol, Güneş Savaş and Seçil Yersel). The members of the collective, who have focused their research on "motherhood and production" since 2013, have had a series of conversations with groups of mothers who are not limited to their own experiences. During these meetings, “How were our daily life and art practices shaped after becoming a mother? How did maternal states affect our production? " questions such as. The Oda Projesi, which expands the scope of these questions with the effects of the ongoing epidemic conditions, will open the concepts related to motherhood to discussion based on the text "The Fisher's Daughter" from Ursula K. Le Guin's Woman Dreams Dragons. 

Özge Açıkkol will focus on the concept and action of "care", which is the basis for a hierarchical and disproportionate relationship or support and solidarity. Seçil Yersel will question motherhood through "witchcraft", which is considered one of the malicious forms of womanhood; will develop a reading about the constructive, destructive and productive aspects of the mother, who is perceived as a healing and life-priming force in the field of power. Güneş Savaş will go beyond the isolation of epidemic conditions and look at the possibilities of collective action; It will search for ways to create alternatives to private spaces in houses that are getting smaller and more crowded.

(The language in the working groups are in Turkish)

ODA PROJESİ 20 YEARS / 20 YAŞINDA


Merhaba,

Oda Projesi started its life exactly 20 years ago today on January 22, 2000, in Galata, İstanbul.

The artist collective, consisting of Özge Açıkkol, Güneş Savaş and Seçil Yersel, made its opening in 2000 in a three-room apartment on Şahkulu Street 39/1, with Özge Açıkkol’s project based on George Perec’s text "About a Useless Space".

Oda Projesi, with its commitment and respect for the creativity of Istanbul and its residents, still keeps on asking questions and producing about space and place. By using tools such as postcards, radio, books, posters, newspapers, or temporary spaces; it continues to reflect on the possibilities of new relationship models as well as on the diversified individual positionings of the group members and the changing public situations.

We are happy to celebrate our 20th anniversary with you.
 We will notify you for a face-to-face meeting in April.

We wish you a healthy and pleasant new year.
Kind regards
Oda Projesi

Merhaba

Oda Projesi, tam 20 sene önce bugün; 22 ocak 2000'de bir cumartesi günü, hayatına İstanbul, Galata'da başladı. 

Özge Açıkkol, Güneş Savaş ve Seçil Yersel'den oluşan sanatçı kolektifi 2000 yılında Şahkulu Sokak 39/1 adresinde yer alan üç odalı mekânda; Özge Açıkkol'un, Georges Perec'in "Yararsız Bir Uzama Dair" metnini merkeze aldığı projesi ile açılışını yaptı. 
   
Oda Projesi, halen İstanbul ve sakinlerinin yaratıcılıklarına olan bağını ve saygısını ön planda tutarak, yere ve mekâna dair sorular sormayı sürdürüyor. Kartpostal, radyo, kitap, poster, gazete gibi araçları ya da geçici mekânları kullanarak yeni ilişki modellerinin olanakları —ve grup üyelerinin farklılaşan bireysel pozisyonları ve farklılaşan kamusal durumlar—  üzerine düşünmeye ve üretmeye devam etmektedir.

20. yılımızı sizlerle beraber kutlamaktan keyif duyuyoruz.

Nisan ayında gerçekleşecek yüzyüze buluşma için sizi haberdar edeceğiz.

Sağlıklı ve keyifli bir yeni yıl dileklerimizle
Sevgiler
Oda Projesi
