The Moving Museum Istanbul - Residency Head Quarters

The Istanbul residency was headquartered in Ark Kultur, a stunning historic 1940’s three-story modernist Villa in Cihangir, a trendy neighbourhood in the central Beyoglu district of Istanbul. The Villa was transformed to serve as the centre of public engagement and dialogue where all our public talks were held weekly. The space included a communal workspace where artists would meet daily and became the central hub for everyone to work from; it also included a , photo studio, micro exhibition area, multipurpose workshop and dining room, reading room and discussion area.

Working with local artist, designer and Moving Museum production advisor Berkutay Gunel, we worked with local carpenters to design bespoke furniture for the space.
