Solo is a series of performative experiments in verbal and nonverbal communication that aim to reclaim femininity in contemporary Istanbul.
It is currently composed of two distinct aspects: one of tagging the streets with “Cumhuriyet Kadını!” (trans. Republic(-an) Woman!) and the other of real life performative responses to sexist pseudo-caring remarks regarding her smoking habits.
“Cumhuriyet Kadını” can be tracked on this Foursquare list.
Documentation of #solo’s latter aspect is currently in progress.
