"Is there another chance?" makes visible the struggle of memory against the relentless desire for change and transformation imposed by the contemporary age of rapid transformations. It persistently insists on expanding opportunities, spreading signals and glimmers of an "against all odds" attitude that repairs and soothes, while simultaneously encouraging collective action. The exhibition presents a diverse array of works created by the artists Mehmet Ali Boran, Antonio Cosentino, Memed Erdener, Yunus Emre Erdoğan, Kaan Fıçıcı, Rana Kelelci, Melike Koçak, Şifa Girinci, Aytekin Olgunsoy, Sümer Sayın, Egemen Tuncer, Seçil Yaylalı, encompassing various disciplines.

In today's reality, where local elements are disappearing, the preservation of structures carrying the imprints of culture and time takes precedence over hastily constructing memoryless buildings driven by populist trends. Living spaces, workplaces, neighbourhoods, and entire towns gradually fade into oblivion, from fragments to the whole. Personal narratives, societal concerns, testimonies, transformations, coping, and even resignations all serve as poignant reminders of the question “Is there another chance?”
