Sinopale 7

"here and where"

SAHA supports the new productions of artists from Turkey for the International Sinop Biennial held on 17 August - 20 September 2019. Curated by Mona Mahall and Aslı Serbest, Banu Cennetoğlu, Fulya Erdemci, Hayırlı Evlat, Kemal Özen, Pınar Öğrenci ve Şener Özmen produced new works. The European Cultural Association organizes the Sinop Biennial in cooperation with international curators, based on their long-term micro-political and liberating efforts. The Sinopale 7 title, "here and where" (here and where), obtained by changing the phrase Here and There (here and there), expresses a place on the edge of our perception and is excluded from our dominant narratives. However, a place where geo-political and geo-cultural realities are lived together with the history of material, linguistic and mythological change constitutes a lived present. This means a location policy.

About Sinopale

Sinopale, International Sinop Biennial is the title of an international project, that in the context of local development, draws the civil society together with the purpose of building dialogue through culture and arts, within the framework of the “artistic production based on sharing” model.  The project aims to work on urban, national and international levels in order to urge citizens of all ages to perceive anew their own living spaces with a vision for the future, reflect on urban problems, share historical collective memory and organise it by means of artistic production, and ultimately create a better social living space.
