With his 4th DIVAN- / SOFA-project, Josef Trattner again takes us to the borders of Europe, and now beyond, to Istanbul, Samsun, Trabzon, Ankara, and Izmir. In the country chosen this time, he has again invited artists, writers, musicians, and architects to converse with him about the city’s spaces while sitting together on the red foam sofa. The new publication, just released, collects the traces of the journeys in Turkey; the photos and texts are taken from his discussions, encounters, and travels. Josef Trattner presents a new, grand chapter in his European documentary project and offers the reader a very novel approach to understanding the intellectuals, artists, and writers from the position of their situation in present-day Turkey.
