University as a Public Space // a performative intervention to the public space

“University as a Public Space” is a project that questions the existence of Bilgi University in the public sphere through walking action. The people who are participating in the march will be invited to review the events and situations at certain stops which will demonstrate the issues that University have been through in recent years. The situation and the events in these stops, like a  criminal records, will provide a read-out of the university’s experiences in a semi-public area. This walking action will be shaped as if it were a touristic trip.

poşe is conceived with an urge to establish a community. It is an open-space for those who feel the need for dialogue and critique. We hope it will be a place for meeting, thinking, trying, doing, failing, re-thinking, re-trying and re-doing, etc.
poşe is a borrowed Turkish word from French. It is derived from the verb pocher and means to sketch, to mix, to poach. öykü & larissa
