Istanbul, Turkey
2015 - Ongoing

Galata Petanque Club is a local Art-project which endeavours to make use of the ideological and geographical nature of Istanbul as a city-space. The club allows concerned participants to intervene and navigate through the various sociological, physical and political terrains of the city, functioning as an exploratory platform which establishes a roaming critique of local urban topologies, using the possibility of playing petanque as a vehicle for open discourse concerning the nature, design and evolution of cities and how they are to be used, perceived and developed.

Galata Petanque Kulübü İstanbul şehirinin yapısal ve ideolojik coğrafyasıyla müdahale eden bir yerli sanatsal projedir. Kulüp, şehirin sosyolojik, fiziksel ve politik alanlarında yol bulma mücadelhesini sorgulama amacıyla, petank'ın aracılığıyla ilgilenen şahısları kentsel eleştiri kurma ve çeşitli yorum keşifleri için bir araya getiriyor
