“Erewyrehve (ehr-roo-reev) is a postcapitalist and primitivist land founded on principles od self-organisation, mutual co-operation and common ownership. In this curious land, everyday life is very different to that which the majority of us experience today.” Andy Abbott

Andy Abbott is an artist, writer and musician who came from West Yorkshire to Istanbul by the Gasworks  International Fellowship program to Istanbul, where he developed a research project called POSTCARDS FROM EREWYEHVE during 5 weeks. By distributing printed postcards around certai parts of the city and preparing, he invited to a postcapitalist utopic world. Abbott presented his project at 4 of  February at PİST///, during 3 days exhibition, he is offering to exist that project by completing the postcards. The project and website , which is in both Turkish and English,  invites you to ponder life as if you are a member of the Erewyrehre society, and take a step closer to this postcapitalist utopia.
