Two earthquakes with a magnitude of 7.6 and 7.7, which occurred consecutively on February 6 in Kahramanmaraş, caused the death and injury of many people in both Turkey and Syria, as well as leaving thousands of people homeless and seriously damaging cities and archaeological sites. The earthquake victims in the earthquake zone are in very difficult conditions and their needs are very high. The number of people who died in the earthquake, which affected 10 provinces of Turkey and a part of Syria, now exceeds 44,000 in both countries, a figure which is expected to continue rising in the future. For this reason, in this article, we introduce you to earthquake relief donation campaigns related to art and various projects to help earthquake victims through art.

Art Dubai, which will take place for the 16th time between 3-5 March, announced that until 28 February, 50% of the revenue from the tickets to be sold over the internet will be given to local and international charities as well as to non-government organisations.

On February 9, 2023, e-flux live made a benefit screening of the film Gilgamesh: She Who Saw the Deep (2022) by Pelin Tan & Anton Vidokle, with ticket revenues and donations from the screening of the movie going toward earthquake relief organisations. In addition, the e-flux store, which had previously launched an aid campaign for Ukraine, is now raising money for earthquake victims in Turkey and Syria. All of the income from the products purchased from the store is being sent to disaster relief associations in Turkey. 

The new media artist Refik Anadol, whose solo exhibition Unsupervised is showing at MoMA until April 15, announced on Twitter that he opened an ETH cryptocurrency wallet to help earthquake victims. Stating that he will also donate the income from his ongoing exhibitions to regions affected by earthquake, the Turkish artist’s cryptocurrency wallet campaign collected 4 million 493 thousand 168.61 dollars in two days.

Another institution helping earthquake victims is the London-based non-profit Open Space Contemporary. Founded by Huma Kabakçı, the organisation launched an initiative to help the earthquake victims two days after the earthquake. Within the scope of the initiative created, people who prove that they donated to earthquake relief organisations such as the British Red Cross, Charities Aid Organization and non-governmental organisations in Turkey such as AKUT and Ahbap will be able to purchase the works donated by the artists for the earthquake. 

Sanatla Dayanışma (English translation: Solidarity with Art), a civil enterprise that emerged after the earthquake, is a platform established by artists and art initiatives in Turkey. Sponsored by important art institutions and organisations in Turkey including MIXER, Karşı Sanat Çalışmaları and Performistanbul, the platform contains many artworks from different mediums donated by artists and art initiatives. The revenues of the purchased works reach Turkey's important civil aid and rescue organisations such as Ahbap and AKUT as aid. It is possible to access information such as purchasing and shipping of works on the platform through its website www.sanatladayanisma.org.

Aid is vital for all people affected by the earthquake. In this difficult period when thousands of people lost their lives and became homeless, earthquake victims are still in the first phase of their disaster and will need even more support to live in better conditions in the long run. Therefore, at the end of our article, we would like to remind you that there are many international and local relief organisations and donation campaigns, where each donation means a lot.

Another institution helping earthquake victims is the London-based non-profit Open Space Contemporary. Founded by Huma Kabakçı, the organisation launched an initiative to help the earthquake victims two days after the earthquake. Within the scope of the initiative created, people who prove that they donated to earthquake relief organisations such as the British Red Cross, Charities Aid Organization and non-governmental organisations in Turkey such as AKUT and Ahbap will be able to purchase the works donated by the artists for the earthquake. 

Sanatla Dayanışma (English translation: Solidarity with Art), a civil enterprise that emerged after the earthquake, is a platform established by artists and art initiatives in Turkey. Sponsored by important art institutions and organisations in Turkey including MIXER, Karşı Sanat Çalışmaları and Performistanbul, the platform contains many artworks from different mediums donated by artists and art initiatives. The revenues of the purchased works reach Turkey's important civil aid and rescue organisations such as Ahbap and AKUT as aid. It is possible to access information such as purchasing and shipping of works on the platform through its website www.sanatladayanisma.org.

Aid is vital for all people affected by the earthquake. In this difficult period when thousands of people lost their lives and became homeless, earthquake victims are still in the first phase of their disaster and will need even more support to live in better conditions in the long run. Therefore, at the end of our article, we would like to remind you that there are many international and local relief organisations and donation campaigns, where each donation means a lot.

Following the devastating earthquakes, we take a look at the artists and institutions offering their support to those affected

Two earthquakes with a magnitude of 7.6 and 7.7, which occurred consecutively on February 6 in Kahramanmaraş, caused the death and injury of many people in both Turkey and Syria, as well as leaving thousands of people homeless and seriously damaging cities and archaeological sites. The earthquake victims in the earthquake zone are in very difficult conditions and their needs are very high. The number of people who died in the earthquake, which affected 10 provinces of Turkey and a part of Syria, now exceeds 44,000 in both countries, a figure which is expected to continue rising in the future. For this reason, in this article, we introduce you to earthquake relief donation campaigns related to art and various projects to help earthquake victims through art.

On February 9, 2023, e-flux live made a benefit screening of the film Gilgamesh: She Who Saw the Deep (2022) by Pelin Tan & Anton Vidokle, with ticket revenues and donations from the screening of the movie going toward earthquake relief organisations. In addition, the e-flux store, which had previously launched an aid campaign for Ukraine, is now raising money for earthquake victims in Turkey and Syria. All of the income from the products purchased from the store is being sent to disaster relief associations in Turkey. 

The new media artist Refik Anadol, whose solo exhibition Unsupervised is showing at MoMA until April 15, announced on Twitter that he opened an ETH cryptocurrency wallet to help earthquake victims. Stating that he will also donate the income from his ongoing exhibitions to regions affected by earthquake, the Turkish artist’s cryptocurrency wallet campaign collected 4 million 493 thousand 168.61 dollars in two days.
