Mission and Goals

The desire to be at the center means that life is confined to the centers. The Baksı Museum takes a position against everything being dragged into the center, proposing that the center be perceived from the periphery. Migration in the region has led to the loss of traditional culture and to cultural alienation. As a cultural focus which will resist the disappearance of culture as well as ruptures in the story of humanity, the Baksı Museum aims to revive local ceramic and weaving traditions, to seek ways which will make it possible for people to find, in their home territory, the material resources to carry on with life, and to create fresh areas which will bring together traditional culture and contemporary lifestyles.
