Pinsapo 2020 Projects

Dear Friends, Family & Beloveds and Soon-To-Be Friends, Family & Beloveds, 

Pinsapo is a small organization that serves as a home base for co-creating  publications, art events and multimedia projects with a loose and rotating list of people from around the world. So far we've hosted numerous events and published seven books. You can read about it all on our website . We're reaching out to you now to see if you might have a few dollars to help us realize the things we have planned for 2020.

To make a long long story short, we're asking you to help lubricate the emergence of our upcoming projects, which will support the work of many people, possibly including and not limited to the Turkish poet Birhan Keskin, Swedish visual artist Anna Ekros, NYC free jazz musician Daniel Carter, Kurdish poet/translator Selim Temo, Palestinian multimedia artist / scholar Naser Jawabra and others floating in Pinsapo's growing orbit. And as always, we have readings, parties, concerts and get-togethers in the works.

Our intention is that Pinsapo will ultimately encompass lots more people, making it an online and real-life neighborhood of nomads where everyone can serve simultaneously as artist and audience without being weighed down by the tastes and prejudices of the capital A Art Market. We're hoping to see as much and many of you along the way as possible.

With love,
Öykü and Miriam
