Join us for the 6th Urban Talks event, hosted by the founders of Urbanwalks.ankara, Cem and Cemre, in collaboration with Ka. We are excited to have Sonat Özcivanoğlu as our guest speaker for this thrilling event. The talk will be conducted in Turkish, and there's no need to book in advance.

 

Let's explore the urban spaces we have experienced on foot until now, delving into the rich historical layers of the city and its significant contributors and concepts. Together with our special guests at each event, we'll embark on a journey to discover the built environment and the people shaping it, ensuring you'll be on the edge of your seat throughout.

 

For our sixth talk, we are delighted to welcome Sonat Özcivanoğlu as our guest. We will engage in a conversation with her about the art of mapping cities and nature from the perspective of an academic and urban enthusiast. Taking inspiration from a world filled with pens, books, coffee, and cats, we will explore various expressions of pedestrian practices, from the Situationists to the Olipoists. Above all, we will learn and laugh together.

 

Sonat Özcivanoğlu

Born in 1991 in Malatya, Sonat has been living in Ankara since the age of 3. In 2015, she graduated from Middle East Technical University, majoring in Architecture. As part of her master's program at the same university, she attended lectures and workshops as an exchange student at TU Eindhoven in 2017. During her master's degree, she completed a thesis titled "Walking Oriented Map Production as a Spatial Constitutive Practice in Architecture," organizing various exhibitions and "in situ mapping" workshops. Since 2019, she has been working as a research assistant at TEDU Department of Architecture, continuing her research on architectural discourse and narrative in the METU Architecture PhD Program.

 

Sonat's artistic production encompasses various practices, seamlessly transitioning between them. She actively engages in text-theory and visual-fiction, using architecture and literature as mediums for her productive exploration. In her free time, she enjoys painting, photography, and creating edits/collages. Sonat has exhibited her paintings in various group exhibitions and held her first solo exhibition titled "Simple Machine + Uncanny" in 2018. This was followed by two more solo exhibitions, "Which of the Following" and "Weather Opposition," in 2022. Whether in her studio or in the midst of daily life, Sonat finds inspiration in any setting, always equipped with her trusty pens as she thrives on producing amidst the hustle and bustle.
