Nostalgic Feelings

One of the emerging artists, Safar Barlik from Beirut, is back with another video. Safar Barlik is a Lo-Fi, home made music project. It is all done by one person who has deeply engraved, nostalgic feelings towards Beirut and its long lost golden age. If you want to collaborate with SB, please drop a comment and we’ll put you in touch with them.

Jabal by Safar Barlik:

Çukurcuma

  • Just around the corner of Orhan Pamuk's Museum of innocence
  • the streets are full of objects of desire
  • His name is red as well
  • shop owners started selling small items
  • waiting for another Kemal
  • driving a Volvo
  • and stealing stuff from Füsün's place

Çukurcuma is still a rather sleepy place in the busy Beyoğlu district of Istanbul.
Gentrification is proceeding slowly.The place seems to try to fit to Orhan Pamuk’s plot of the
novel “Museum of innocence”. The real museum is in the neighbourhood.

Periferi: The Terror of Reality

The Terror of Reality is a term, that was developed by a group of artists in Turkey calling

thenselves “Periferi”. Periferi feels a closeness to the Situationists International, a

leftist avantgard art movement of the 1960th. Environment, urbanism, social rsistance

and the active fight against a capitalist “psychogram” of society were some of their main

topics.
