Alternative Readings: Ye Funa and the Istanbul Queer Art Collective

ISTANBUL QUEER ART COLLECTIVE‘s latest rendition of Psychic Bibliophiles (2017) took place over Skype on June 19. The audience gathered in Istanbul’s Bilsart while the artists were in London. Courtesy Bilsart.

On the evening of June 19, a small crowd squeezed onto the wooden benches that had been set up in the cool concrete bunker of Istanbul’s Bilsart. We had gathered to watch Psychic Bibliophiles (2017), a performance by Tuna Erdem and Seda Ergul of the Istanbul Queer Art Collective, presented by Collective Çukurcuma as part of the show “Flow Out.”
