Bir harita, 25 çesitli mekan: Tophane Art Walk

The sun was high in the sky, but it was not as warming my skin as the day before, while I was walking down Kumbaraca Yokusu. I would explore Tophane today. No, not like Mathias Poisson. Mathias Poisson explored Tophane first and made a map afterwards. I was holding a map already in my hands. The map of Tophane Art Walk. My first goal supposed to be DEPO. I wanted to see Poisson’s Tophane. DEPO was showing a huge map and a little laboratory. That was lovely.

I observed the little groups of people walking around at this sunny, windy day, strolling up and down on Bogaz Kesen Street, getting in and out the galleries, asking questions and finding somehow a way getting into art through this walk. I saw faces reflecting big question marks and bright inspiration, while they were holding maps in their hands- they started thinking.
