Beton-Arme
Doğanın betonlaşmaya ”dur” dediği günümüzde, insanlar daha fazla bina dikerek doğaya karşı durmaya devam ediyor. Estetik çöplük haline gelen gökdelenlerle dolup taşan metropoller ortaya çıkıyor…

Osmanlı’dan günümüze kalan geleneksel sahne figürlerinden biridir Zenne kültürü.
Türk kültüründe kadınların erkekler önünde dans etmesi hoş karşılanmazdı. Bu sebeple erkekler arasında kadın kıyafetli ve kadın gibi kıvırtarak oynayan erkek oyuncular bulunurdu. Özellikle Afganistan ve Pakistan bölgelerinde yaygın bir şekilde küçük yaştaki erkek çocuklara zennelik eğitimi veriliyor. Afganistan da çocuk istismarına en çok uğrayan ise bu çocuklar oluyor.
Bu, kadınlarla erkeklerin aynı sosyal ortamlarda buluşmadığı Afganistan’da, çok eskiden beri uygulanan bir gelenek. Zaten baçabaze, kelime anlamı olarak, ‘oğlanla oynamak’ demek.
Ama işin rahatsız edici tarafı, bu davetlerin sona ermesinden sonra erkek çocukların otellere götürülmesi ve bazen birkaç erkekle birlikte cinsel ilişkiye girmek durumunda kalmaları.(BBC).
Türkiye de ise oryantalist bir bakışla ele alınıyor zennelik. Orta sınıf yada zengin düğünlerinin eğlence kaynağı haline geliyor.

Prefabrik Mezarlar

1999 yılında Kocaeli’de yaşanan depremin izleri silinemedi. Depremde insanların sığındığı prefabrik evlerden geriye terk edilmiş bir mezarlığı andıran bu görüntüler kaldı. Doğanın betonlaşmaya ”dur” dediği depreme karşı insanlar daha fazla bina dikerek karşı duruyor.

Tesîra erdheja ku di sala 1999an de li Kocaeliyê çêbû hê jî ji holê ranebû. Xaniyên prefabrîk ên ku di demên erdhejê de mirov tê de diman hatin terkkirin. Piştî mirovan, xaniyên prefabrîk wek dîmenên merzelên xirabe xuya dikin. Her cih bibû bêton û sirûşt bi erdhejê ve li dijî derket. Lê belê mirovan guh nedanê û hê jî zêde avahî çê kirin.

The signs which the earthquake of 99 in kocaeli left havent been removed ever since. during the quake the people searched for shelter in the pref houses, which are still a cemetery and rembering. Against the betonizing of the environment the nature reacts with earthquakes to say stop, but the human kind is still building and building more.

Pref friedhof, die narben die das Erdbeben im jahre 99 in kocaeli hinterlies konnten nicht ausgelöscht werden. Während des erbebens retteten sich die menschen in die pref Häuser und bis heute blieb ein Friedhof als mahnmal erhalten. Gegen die betonisierung der Umwelt reagiert die natur mit einem “stop” in form eines erdbebens, die Menschen jedoch antworten darauf mit weiteren Bauten.

Kurdische Hochzeiten auf 550m bedrängt. 
Es werden kurdische hochzeiten behandelt die aus verschiedenen Gründen auf kleine hochzeitssalone eingegrentzt werden. 
Diese Entwicklung beeinträchtigt sie in der Ausübung ihrer Kultur und Bräuche. Die Feierlichkeiten die sonst tage und Nächte lang andauern werden somit auf wenige Stunden begrenzt. 
Im laufe der zeit wird so die farbenfrohe Kultur immer mehr an Mainstream Großstadt Gepflogenheiten angepasst und die Hochzeiten verlieren ihren einzigartigen charme. 
TR 
500 m2 ye sığdırılmış kürt düğünleri. 
Belirli ve belirsiz nedenlerle doğudan göç etmiş kürtlerin düğün salonlarina sıkıştırılmış düğünleri ele alınmaktadır.
Bu durum, kendilerini kültürel açıdan şiddetli bir şekilde yontmakta ve sömürmektedir. Günler ve gecelerce süren çeşitli şenlikleri; bu şekilde üç beş saate indirgenmektedir. 
Geçen zamanla birlikte renkliliklerini yok edip, genel şehir düğünü haline getirecektir.
