Guerilla photo exhibition in Istanbul streets ahead of Gezi Park protests’ anniversary
Some 25 photographs, each printed 20 times, will be hung around the Taksim area until May 26 as part of the project.Over the next few days, Istanbul residents will find themselves randomly coming across photographs taken during last year’s Gezi Park protests: On the façade of abandoned houses, on the walls of ATMs, and even at the top of street signs.
Some 25 photographs, each printed 20 times, will be hung around the Taksim area until May 26 as part of the project. Around 100 photographs will be hung every day, but it remains unknown exactly when, where, and for how long they will stay up.
“You can grab any picture you like and take it home. Be quick, because the photographs may not stay long on the walls,” the organizers of the guerilla exhibition have said, adding that the project was intended to exhibit in the central streets where the protests took place.
People are also invited to take photos of the pictures and share them online via Twitter, Facebook and Instagram with the hashtag #DirenGeziParkı (#ResistGeziPark).
