Public in the Making is a conference-gathering that will take place in Istanbul from 18-20 October, 2018. This event is part of the “trans-making” (https://trans-making.eu/) project, which is supported from 14 countries. by the EU’s Horizon 2020 program and constituted by 20 institutions and some 150 individuals.
This gathering invites all those who want to become part of it to rethink and research the notion of the public theoretically practically artistically and culturally. It offers reflections on migration and memory under conditions of war, oral cultural history, the participatory strategies of art institutions, intellectual commons, urban agricultural and eating practices. It thus seeks to invite the discussion of the possibilities of a public sphere we have not yet built but may well do. Asu Aksoy, Peter Klepec and Renata Salecl will give thematic presentations of the state of the public sphere whereas Mahir Namur, Zeynep Kadirbeyoglu, Yeliz Kahya, Nafiz Aksehirli, Çiğdem Kaya, Ezgi Tuncer, RCE, Zeynep Arda, Mustafa Avcı, Zeynep Günay and Architecture for All will act as panel moderators.
