A new graphic novel published by Jap Sam Books

Artist Minem Sezgin introduces No Seat at The Table, a graphic novel project created with international and interdisciplinary efforts of creatives, architects and illustrators from Turkey and the Netherlands. Through four local fictional stories based on real life experiences and told from the perspective of a pigeon, the artists focus on some characteristics of gentrification and urban transformation, particularly on the residential displacement.

The artists question the notion of income diversity related to urban transformation, and explore its influences on social networks and inclusivity of the neighbourhoods. In each country, one city has been exposed to gentrification extensively (Amsterdam and Istanbul), whereas the other is being exposed to gentrification relatively sooner but rapidly (Utrecht and Ankara). The artists like to connect cities with global influences of gentrification, but also to showcase the local and unique features of each neighbourhood.

More about the documentary Gentrified stories

GENTRIFIED STORIES is a documentary by Read My World and Beyond Walls on the history and impact of gentrification through the eyes of writers, community builders, storytellers, entrepreneurs, organizations, and more living in the boroughs of the city of Amsterdam. What is gentrification exactly and who is responsible to stop or slow down this process? Who’s the gentrifier and who’s being gentrified? And how can we reimagine a future where prosperity can benefit all?

Soufia Zahri dives into the various districts of Amsterdam and talks to some active and engaged residents. With reflections on the demographic changes affecting them and their communities, they shed a critical light on the impact of gentrification in today’s world.
