A Gonzoconsult project with the collaboration of halka art project

Hamburg based organisation starts new enterprise at Istanbul!
Gonzoconsult is aiming to increase Asia-to-Europe import figures.
Gonzoconsult team members currently are on a mission to catalyse sales of consumables made in Far East throughout Europe.
Gonzoconsult is exploring ways to support import logistics-sector, seeking for market extensions of East Asian goods.
Shareholders, supporters + everybody invited.
Sculptural Performance
Premier date of new venture:
19.05.2012, 19:00 (Opening /Vernissage)
Kadıköy "Karaköy ve Eminönü İskelesi" 1st Floor, Terrace

In early summer 2012 seven floating Glass objects will cross the Bosporus at Istanbul from Asia to Europe. Filled with brand new goods from Asia, Far East, they will be tugged on water by a small fishing boat aiming at the European shore.
Goods will be mass-produced items from East-Asian regions like China, Taiwan, Indonesia and Hong Kong, cheap consumables of very short value in daily life.
While large-scale import is normally being performed in sealed containers on huge ships, ”Glassboating the Bosporus” is an attempt towards the visibility of social and ecological matters, raising questions about European consumption habits.
The first step of the process starts with a sculptural performance on 19 May 2012.

With the kind Support of: Benice Logistics, Goethe Institut, Marmara University GSF, halka art project, Studio Istanbul, İstanbul Şehir Hatları.
