Part of the project gecekondu plus.
The core of our project is about expanding the Gecekondu as a symbol for urban development from below, for a political, social and creative appropriation of public space - for a living neighbor solidarity. At the Gecekondu as well as in public space, we are creating new exhibition areas that will be used with (participatory) artistic, creative and political content / contributions within the framework of the project - and beyond.
Sefin A. is 13 years old and lives at Kotti. We got to know him as student representative of the Jens-Nydahl elementary school in a project with Kotti-Coop association. We also had great fun working with Sefin.
I'm Sefin and I've been living at Kotti for over 4 years. Kotti is a home for me. And although many people are talking bad about it, I think it's a very nice place. I did a project here in which I asked people about Kotti. We hanged the answers on large banners at the Gecekondu. I really enjoyed working with my colleagues (Athena, Paco, Sandy).
Through this project I met such nice people who it was fun to work with. Thanks to Sandy for this chance to work with such nice people. I hope the readers like what I've done here and that many people can also find Kotti good."
