Oven, barber, tailor, bus stop, street, pharmacy, park etc. have been used as a very public space exhibition area. The artists placed their works as they wanted to the areas of their choice and created a different steering system by placing a blue wooden chair to give the audience the clue that it was a work of art in that field. The event was supported simultaneously with artists' paintings, photographs, videos and other visual works, as well as performances, 64 drama and painting works with children, music concert and poetry recitals of Kuzguncuk poets. With the workshop of many of the artists involved in the project and the house of the artist in Kuzguncuk, the artists opened their workshops to all the visitors and realized various work shops.
