Meeting World Heritage

MEETING WORLD HERITAGE: ESSEN, ISTANBUL, WEIMAR

World heritage sites, under the protection of UNESCO, hold an important and symbolic function in representing their region. However, artistic, critical and participative approaches to analyze these sites are pretty rare. This project aims to create a platform for youngsters to discuss the importance of world heritage sites and lay claim on the historical and cultural heritage of their own cities with creative means.

Hypercycle helped to design the catalog which documented the project and resulting artistic exhibition.

The Project “Meeting World Heritage” is supported by the Mercator Foundation (Essen) and implemented by Stiftung Zollverein (Essen), Klassik Stiftung Weimar (Weimar) and Anadolu Kültür (Istanbul).
