March 2022 - March 2023
Darağaç_Bostan, Darağaç_karargah, DAR mekan and alternative public/private spaces located in Umurbey neighborhood
The REINCARNATE darağaç Project will be able to afford the annual rent of its two spaces (Karargah and DAR mekan) that are commonly used both for production, events and repairs in the neighbourhood. The project’s main goal is to produce furniture and create site-specific interventions with new functional designs that boast suitable infrastructure for producing publications, books and special printed artworks made from collected waste and second hand materials.
As part of its aforementioned “self-transformation goal”, the REINCARNATE darağaç Project plans to renovate and improve the existing infrastructure including exhibition units, kitchen, bathroom and roof as well as updating technical equipment and consumables for better use. With improved access, these spaces are intended to become a platform where potential solutions to contemporary issues such as the destruction of nature in the context of upcycling and ecology, excessive consumption, and social dissolution can be discussed and implemented.
