Anna Larissa Araz (1990)  produces works in a variety of media including text, video, image 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. 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 co-founded Poşe Open Space with photographer and film producer Öykü Canlı in April 2018. Poşe is conceived with an urge to establish a community. It is a physical and mental open-space for those who feel the need for dialogue and critique. They have displayed 16 exhibitions including solo and group productions along with public programing and video content.
