A node in the Pixelache network, PixelIST focused on knowledge production for its first edition. Pixelache Network, manifested as a pedagogical 3-4 day platform, which is called a ‘curated pedagogy’ project, involving participants from the Pixelache Network (Helsinki, Malmö, Budapest, Berlin, London), plus performances from local cultural practitioners from Ankara & İstanbul, including Bilgi University Visual Communication Design students as participants.

Activities focused on the transfer, exchange of knowledge in the process, the localization of imported knowledge and the value of locally-produced vs. network-produced knowledge. e hope was to produce a self-reflective encounter, asking ourselves “how do we produce and share knowledge?”
