Gezi Park, Istanbul: Reconsiderations

Thursday, Nov 14, 2013

Take a new look at this summer's of Gezi Park in Istanbul, which drew world-wide attention to the power of public space as a political platform. Recalling events of the “Arab spring,” yet radically different from them, Gezi Park demonstrations opened a wide range of questions, expressed through colorful, creative, and varied venues. The accompanying debates highlighted the active role played by the city itself in the expression of public opinion. Inevitably, they also flattened complex issues about the history of Turkey, and the city itself. The goal is to reflect on the past, present, and future of this central node in Istanbul from several perspectives: history of urban forms, socio-political contexts and their ramifications, architectural and urban design practices, notions of public space, cultural/ideological dimensions, & everyday life.
