ARAF (Purgatory)
On the Ephesus – Selçuk stop, the Balconnection team prepared a multidisciplinary, participatory art project based on not only immigration but also the interrupted migrations and being stuck somewhere in between.

Özgür Ceylan’s art video: “All the Way”; Azadeh Ramezani Tabrizi’s art video: “Arafabad” and with Murat Savaşkan, “Araf”, a collage of audio – installation will be seen. We are grateful for the very valuable contribution of Yeşim Kopan (the sound of the doll in the show) and Sakine Kayhan’s ending lullaby.

We extend our sincere thanks to participating artists and musicians with Balconnection Initiative and the Municipality of Selçuk.
