Bazaars & Shopping

  • Bazaars & Shopping

    One of the most important indicators of human being transformed from a natural being into a natural/cultural being is firstly exchange and after then shopping...
    Afterwards, human have institutionalized shopping and constructed places for shopping. Agoras, inns, bazaars, markets... etc. etc.
    Meeting at areas for shopping as a human behaviour can not be explained just as 'fulfilling the needs'. Gathering, interaction and making conversation is more important than that.
    Agoras are the epitome of that. Agoras in the cities of antiquity are shopping spaces in one sense but on the other hand the spaces for creating thoughts and doing social activities.
    The historical bazaars and inns are still in use at the present day and they are integral pieces of our eternal geography.
    Bazaars and shopping, that remained alive from thousands years ago till now, serve as mirrors in the society.
    It is possible to make social, political and cultural analysis observing bazaars and shopping in that areas.
    A human, who fills the bazaars to meet the needs, leaves traces in time with this attitude. Even more becomes the time itself...
