Oda Projesi & Nadin Reschke
Oda Projesi is an artist collective based in Istanbul; composed of Özge Açıkkol, Güneş Savaş and Seçil Yersel. Starting in the year 2000, their appartment in Galata functioned as a non-profit independent space, hosting projects, gatherings and acts up until 2005, when Oda Projesi was evicted due to gentrification. Since then Oda Projesi has a mobile status and continues to raise questions on space and place, creating relationship models by using different mediums like radio stations, books, postcards, newspapers; depending on and respecting the creativity of Istanbul and its citizens. Oda Projesi has been also concerned with the relationship between the artistic production and its “precariousness”. Recently, after all the members became mothers, the same questions have shifted to how the artistic production is affected out of being an artist parent.
