Space of possibles – Istanbul

Intervention in public space.

Istanbul,

“Space of posibles”* consists of a sound installation based on a compilation of women’s voices with the aim of reclaiming public sphere in the public space of Istanbul.
The audio of the installation is the result of a fieldwork research, which consisted of 20 interviews with a diverse variety of women from different parts of Istanbul. We took into account factors such as sex, class, age, socioeconomic and political status, religious and ethnic pluralism.

* The tittle “Space of possibles” [l’espace des possibles] is a concept developed by French sociologist Pierre Bourdieu. He argues that every position taken is defined in relation to the “Space of possibles“ and that one is always surprised to see how much people’s wills adjust to their possibilities.
