Anna Larissa Araz (1990)   whose practice focuses on the medium of photography; she produces works in a variety of media including text, video and sound. Through a personal viewpoint, she focuses at the topics of history, identity, memory and belonging that are included or not included in social memory. This personalization is related to her belonging to a family that combines different minorities of the geography she lives in. The questions that are not answered by history that we repeatedly ask ourselves-or not anymore- are the main threads of an existential research of Araz.

Araz and Öykü Canlı has founded Poşe Space in Moda, Istanbul in 2018. For more information:
