No Seat At The Table
|Publisher||Jap Sam Books|
‘No Seat at the Table’ is a fictional graphic novel about the local and global influences of gentrification on citizens in Turkish and Dutch cities. It highlights four neighbourhoods where this phenomenon is occurring: Piyalepaşa in Istanbul, Ismetpasa in Ankara, De Kolenkitbuurt in Amsterdam, and Lombok in Utrecht. Each story is inspired by real-life experiences of residential displacement, told from the perspective of pigeons. The stories critically investigate gentrification, the housing crisis, and current ideas about priorities and affordability in urban planning. Written by Minem Sezgin and illustrated by Rajab Eryigit, Bob Mollema, Erhan Muratoglu, and Jasmijn de Nood.
