Performistanbul on Youtube
The Performistanbul YouTube channel will be presenting new live camera performances, documentaries, and interviews as well as videos of past performances.
The first international performance platform in Turkey to bring performance artists together, Performistanbul introduced a number of national and international artists to premiere new works in collaboration with Istanbul’s leading arts.
The venue aims to reach wider audiences in Istanbul and abroad with the YouTube channel.
“Smile” will be the first camera performance that will stream live on the Performistanbul channel. It will be presented by performance artist Selin Kocagöncü on Aug. 24 between 7 and 8 p.m.
During the performance, the artist works on developing a smile to use when posing for photographs, attempting to resolve the feminist crisis caused by the clash of expectations of beauty, need for authenticity, and the overall requirements of posing.
