It were mostly young people who occupied Gezi Park in Istanbul and went to the streets to fight for their rights. They risked getting injured, beaten up, jailed, or even killed.
Who are they?
With their work, the artists want to give those protesters a face, and tell their story. They want to get them out of anonymity.
!!! Don’t miss the ARTIST TALK on Friday 25th January at the Opening !!!
