Apartment Project is an organization devoted to collaborative artistic practice with a focus on global-local idea exchange. Our central areas of interest are:politically engaged art, transdisciplinary experimentation, and cultural community outreach.
Apartment Project was established in 1999 by Selda Asal as the first artist-run space in Istanbul. Since its inception, Apartment Project has served as a platform for collaboration and cooperation, bringing together artists from different backgrounds to create provocative and innovative work.
In 2012, Apartment Project moved to Berlin-Neukölln and became legally recognized in Germany as an Eingetragener Verein (registered association). Since then, it has also functioned as a mentoring and umbrella organization for a small group of art collectives whose philosophies are in line with Apartment Project’s mission.
Apartment Project supports artistic initiatives that embody the spirit ofinterdisciplinarity and collaboration, often in mobile or international contexts.The organization has realized numerous projects in Turkey, Germany, the South Caucasus, the Balkans, and Iran. In all of these localities, Apartment Project fosters work that fits within its central areas of interest.
