In 2005 the first connection between Dogzstar and The Triangle Project was made
through Ali M Demirel, via New York.
Dogzstar naturally became the place to hang out, and Tanja
Schlander collaborated with Kutay on her main project for her
involment in the Istanbul Biennial. A childrens book where Kutay
represented the lost son who left his family and friends to go out
into the world and learn about life, to later come back to his country
and use his knowledge to help his family and friends.
Kutay and Tanja also performed together in a sound piece performed for Skanbul at Dogzstar. The last night of Skanbul Connection took place at Dogzstar with a night of performance, where Bang was the resident DJ.
Sona who did all the radio interviews was also a resident dj at
Dogzstar and according to Anton Perich who was the resident
photographer at Max's Kansas City and Studio 54, Dogzstar reminded him alot of Max's and he felt the nights he spent there was flawless.
The interiors of Dogzstar was created by Kop-Art, who had also done a
street poster in a back alley of John Waters.
Gamze (Kop-Artist)of course had a tattoo of a triangle on her wrist, and
used a red triangle in the Kop-Art installations both at Dogzstar and
the street art wall on Skanbul's roof.
