Concept origin and organized by Michele Thursz & Fatoş Üstek 

Michele Thursz & Fatoş Üstek will present Art-Actually, and will bring together, through a collective production, a group of actions with the purpose to unite various perspectives on the term art actually.  Art-Actually is a flexible basis with a strong standing point that is to say an easy approach with a critical attitude. Taking place in the public space is to widen the borders of a static exhibition. This action will be initiated through the logo Art-Actually,created by web designer Alon Zouaretz in the form of a sticker that will be distributed through the public sector.
We have organized a  “party faux real” as the opening reception featuring local djs Cenker and Cihan, a video screening organized by Neriman Polat, a zine will be distributed ,designed by Ayşe Kongur.
