<nettime> bio-products trade

Police in Istanbul have 'taken into custody' several people thought to be
involved in the illegal trade in body parts in Turkey. They organisers of
the trades are alleged to have used facebook as the means of marketing for
sellers and maybe buyers. The page was still up last night on facebook.

As a visual artist just starting a project on the intersections between the
historic means and manner of trade and the contemporary for stuff like
bio-products, its almost hard to believe that a story like this is not too
good to be true or is it a giant hoax, hard to tell.
