NEEDED: YOU 672 hour live process that took place between the dates February 16th – March 16th 2018 keep living in different forms.
Performistanbul’s Needed: You, which was presented as a live process that lasted for 28 days, open 24 hour without any intervals for 672 hour, between the dates February 16th – March 16th 2018 while Live Art Research Space was still under construction, is now transformed into an experimental digital archive and is meeting with people once again in this renewed space.
Curated by Simge Burhanoğlu, 9 performances presented by 10 Performistanbul artists, invited guests to join in real life experiences encouraging them to discover a place of their own in these created moments while interacting with the performers, calling for attention to the live process.
Performistanbul takes this experience to a different dimension for both those who experienced and those who missed the live process, and reopened the doors of its Live Art Research Space between February 20th and March 20th 2019, now a totally restored space which had hosted Needed: You. Documentation videos of the performances were been shared with the viewers for the first time in the renovated space that has been converted into a research area. In addition, ‘remains’, like objects collected, diaries written, photographs accumulated during the performance processes, were been shared with the audience for the first time, both physically, and as a digital archive. At the end of this process, the digital archive is now available on the internet.
