Let’s imagine a park in our city. What would we see around? Who would there be? Trees? But which ones? What kinds of flowers? How is the sky? How about we play a quick game and start painting this imaginary park we build together? And what about imagining a different tree than those we see on the streets? Inspired by many installations placed across the city as part of the New Civic Rituals program of the 5th Istanbul Design Biennial we design our dream park together. We use various materials in this park to produce a collage that features several designs.

Materials
Paper
Pencil
Glue
Old magazines and newspapers, flyers, brochures

Capacity: 25 participants
Duration: 40 minutes
Related Exhibition: 5th Istanbul Design Biennial

Through this guided exhibition tour on the Zoom Meeting app, we explore the show with children, diving into an interactive experience.

Access is free, but reservation is required for our workshops to take place from October 20th through November 14th, 2020 as part of the 5th Istanbul Design Biennial, which we prepared in collaboration with İKSV Alt Kat, organized by the Istanbul Foundation for Culture and Arts (İKSV).

Il Cavallo di Leonardo

Il Cavallo di Leonardo

In 1493, exactly 500 years ago, Leonardo da Vinci was finishing the preparations for casting the equestrian monument (4 times life size), which Ludovico il Moro, Duke of Milan commissioned in memory of his father some 12 years earlier. 

Marcel Duchamp’s Bicycle Wheel

Marcel Duchamp’s Bicycle Wheel

In 1998 Ben Jakober and Yannick Vu collaborated on an obvious remake of Marcel Duchamp’s Roue de Bicyclette, his first “readymade” object. Duchamp combined a bicycle wheel, a fork and a stool to create a machine which served no purpose, subverting accepted norms of art.
