CitationAtaş Z., Akın T., & Paşaoğlu A. (2018). "Of Journeys/Yolculuklara Dair" Workshop at the Vardiya (the Shift): The Turkish Pavilion at the 2018 Venice Biennale.
“Of Journeys” is a workshop that aims to overlap the circulation of matter, the building of Fontego dei Turchi which has become a stopover in that circulation, and the personal journeys of the participants. To this end it tackles its theme in three layers: The first layer refers to the circulation of humans and objects on the Venetian and Ottoman trade routes and in the Mediterranean basin, especially textile raw materials and fabrics; the second layer, the personal accumulation and travels of the students and coordinators who will be brought to the International Architecture Exhibition, La Biennale di Venezia; and the third layer refers to this experience itself, that is, the personal experiences of the viewers who visit and follow the Pavilion of Turkey and the Fontego dei Turchi building.
