APARTMENT PROJECT | PG 199
Project by Oda Projesi, an artist collaborative in
Istanbul, consisting of three women artists; Ozge
Acikkol, Gunes Sacas, and Secil Yersel in the year 2000.
The project was a three bedroom apartment in an urban
part of town designed and equipped for the public to
interact both artistically and normally together. The
goal was to, “encourage creative, communal interaction.”
They’re an artist collaborative and involve both private
and public parties in the apartment for performing
workshops or to hold exhibitions.
“Where artists, architects, musicians, neighbors, and
children would congregate informally to plan projects,
hold get-togethers, and exist communally both within
and outside of the context of art.”
PARK FICTION AND THE RIGHT TO THE CITY NETWORK HAMBURG | PG 200
Project initiated by local residents and artist, Christoph
Schafer, in the year 1994 and currently still successful.
St. Pauli, Hamburg, Germany.
The entire community of St. Pauli and Hamburg could be
part of the project. Park Fiction (the name of the project),
was an area (one of the only area’s), in Hamburg where
people could meet to play, hold shows, and relax.
The project involved many association’s as well as the city
council to keep the public park space from turning
into a housing development.
The people involved built a mobile “planning container,”
a container to document questionaiires, pictures, maps,
and thoughts throughout the neighboorhood. This was
to gain culture capital to recieve funds from the city’s
Art in Public Space program.
Developers bid on the land to build a high-rise.
