Performistanbul Live Art Research Space

Performistanbul was founded with an initial aim to unite performance artists under one roof and to promote their participation in new projects without a space of its own. As of 2018, the platform goes into a new phase of expanding its existing role and lays the foundations of Performistanbul Live Art Research Space, which will focus on archiving, documenting and exhibiting performance art while providing space and resource for making research. Located in Galata, the research space will be Turkey’s first initiative, providing a dedicated space for performance art. The Live Art Research Space will have a specialized library with an archive of more than 7000 physical and digital resources and it will also launch Performistanbul Publishing, aiming to publish new books as well as translated books in Turkish.
