Sea Elephant Travel Agency

Nov 5, 2013 12:46PM
The online version of Sea Elephant Travel Agency, launched May 2013 by InEnArt in memory of the Istanbul based artist Hüseyin B. Alptekin, offers an open forum focussing on interactions of variety of populations and cultures in the Black Sea Region.

Sea Elephant Travel Agency displays manifestations, performances and exhibitions that took place in the past, mostly in the name of the Black Sea Project, and invites artists and art professionals to participate in an ongoing visual and performing arts laboratory beyond borders, as the Hulda Festival by the Ilhan Koman Foundation does nowadays.
