1. "Yekpare" is a storyteller which narrates the 8500 year story of Istanbul. The story embraces symbols from Pagans to Roman Empire, from Byzantine Empire to Latin Empire, and finally from Ottoman Empire to Istanbul at the present day.

    Haydarpaşa Train Station, with its brilliant architectural forms, is the building on which the story is projected. The connection between middle east to west has been provided by Istanbul and Haydarpaşa since 1906. In the 50’s it served as a door for millions of internal emigrants who have triggered the chaos in Istanbul's dialectical daily life scenes.The project's conceptual, political and geographical positioning, the location’s depth of field and the fact that the entire show can be watched from Kadıköy coast; make "Yekpare" a dramatic presentation.

    The first day of the performance also marks the 47th deathday of Nazım Hikmet Ran, the famous Turkish poet. We started out with a quote from his epic novel, "Human Landscapes from My Country": “At Haydarpaşa Train Station, in the spring of 1941, it is three o’clock.

    LYRICS:

    I eat for dinner golden bullions
    Diamond dessert and oil cream
    My name of Beelzebub
    The master of the stratosphere
    Im so gratefully cool my respects without measure

    refrain:
    In my left hand Snickers in my right hand Mars
    My PR manager is Karl Marx
    Capital! Capital! Capital! Capital!

    I eat your cities and drink your oceans
    My beard is obscuring the sky
    Thunders and lightnings, fogs and rains
    My shoes are licked by ministers and chiefs

    refrain:
    In my left hand Snickers in my right hand Mars
    My PR manager is Karl Marx
    Capital! Capital! Capital! Capital!

    My face Madonna, in a rotten pear
    Everyone on your knees!
    The orchestra, flourish!
    Capital! Capital! Capital! Capital!

  4. The Obama presidential campaign was innovative. For the first time in American politics, a candidate used art and design to bring together the American people—capturing their voices in a visual way.

    The Design Director of the Obama campaign, Scott Thomas, has collaborated with artists and designers to create Designing Obama, a chronicle of the art from the historic campaign. Get the inside story on how design was used by the campaign, and scope out the pieces, created unofficially, by grassroots supporters.
