Oda Projesi - Özge Açikkol, Günes Savas, Seçil Yersel

As its name indicates - "Oda" signifies "space" - the group Oda Projesi, Özge Açikkol, Günes Savas and Seçil Yersel, is interested in art as a means to create new ways of living and dynamic relations among different uses of private and public spaces, bridging the gap between artists, non-artists and communities. The artists has been working in a specific neighbourhood in Istanbul since 1997, in a place where they organise art exhibitions, workshops with children, and other activities with people living in the area. All these activities deal with the idea of how to create different environments by the use and occupation of the space. The project at kunstprojekte_riem and at the Kunstverein functioned in a similar way, involving the spaces, places and people from Messestadt Riem as well as people from Munich.
In October 2003 Oda Projesi set up an exchange library for general use in the residents’ meeting area in Lehrer-Wirth-Strasse 19. The bookshelves will be moved to the Kulturbürgerhaus in the Riem Arcades in 2004.
