Collective writing, video and publication / 11m3 Project Space Weimar / with Arnisa Halil

Hajde is a collaborative, diverse and interdisciplinary diary project reuniting 24 women with different backgrounds between December 2020 and May 2021. Together we aim to combine the past and current years feelings to create a collective memory and space in pandemic times we will like to look back on in future.  HAJDE symbolizes an atmosphere, meaning “Let’s start” or “Come (on)” and is used in Anatolia and the Balkans. The diaries include situations from the beginning of the pandemic and also current thoughts in German and English. The stories are anonymous; only the place and date are presented. The diary creates a support instrument among women through uncertain times. Project want to make their stories visible and document their strategies to overcome current struggles during the pandemic times.

The project is produced with the support of Bauhaus Womens Promotion Fund and exhibited at 11m3 Project Space Weimar
