PASAJ started a research residency program that cooperated with Ramada Encore Bayrampasa hotel in 2017. Bayrampasa creates an environment for multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary researches with the title of “departers and newcomers, recent ones and old ones” curated by PASAJ. It is aimed to address topics such as industrialization, urban planning, social change, regional architecture, economic activities, immigration, psychogeography with the relation of the artist’s own production method or interest. Onur Ceritoglu was the first artist in 2017, the second one was Burak Dikilitas who was attended in 2018 and Eser Epözdemir was the latest artist for 2019 so far. In the exhibition, the research outputs of each artist through their own artistic practises will be shared; there will be textual and visual expression of the time they spent in Bayrampasa.
