Pelin Tam Seminar 2

4:00 p.m.

Pelin Tan is an Istanbul-based Turkish urbanist. Her practice engages artistic and architectural projects that focus on conflict and territorial politics, gift economy, the condition of labor and mixed methods in research. As a sociologist and art historian, Pelin Tan embraces questions of how to counter our contemporary hegemonic crises of neoliberal urbanization by organizing and sustaining a practice of the commons, where alternative forms of solidarity are found against the backdrop of alternative micro movements. Pelin's work as an urbanist is influenced by her main research area in contemporary art practices since the 1990s, including social and political issues related to contemporary artworks.
