Yıldız, Demet Ayşe (2006) Status map. [Thesis]
This is a supplementary text that investigates the production and exhibition process of the book Status Map/ Statü Haritası. The work exhibited was about the urban practices of Istanbulites who create the “other” gradually. The work can be seen as the revealing of a clear distinction between different social groups in terms of housing tenure types in Istanbul despite the city’s chaotic first look. The exhibition discloses the dividedness of the city through the metaphor of E-5 highway which literally divides the city into two halves. In the first part of the text, the theoretical framework of city’s dividedness will be established starting from a historical point of view, developing through international practices and ending with comparison of local. In the second part, the work itself will be discussed in the theoretical framework established in the previous section.
