Istanbul Travelogue: Revisiting the City

Photo Exhibition at Juno 19/08/- 19/10/13.




With my first exhibition entitled “Revisiting the City”, I aimed  to explore Istanbul, my home city through different lenses and from different angles. The photos and texts I compiled from my personal blog, Istanbul Travelogue, questioned not only the possibility of existing in spaces where we, Istanbullites, feel fragile but also the possibility of a deeper integration in the context of a transforming city. I believe the way to straighten out our relationship with the city is by revisiting the city with a fresh perspective; recognizing our unofficial history, thereby  the inheritance of our ghosts, while coming to terms with whatever we perceive as a threat to our way of being and meeting in our common denominator; humanity. 


The exhibition leaflet & poster, stickers, art menu and promotion cards were designed by Alp Gökalp. 

The photos displayed at the exhibition were printed at Diagonal.

Print: Epson 1180 inkjet print on Fineart Tecco paper 310 gr mounted on 3 mm black Forex board.

The concept we had in mind for the  exhibition brochure was a folded urban map, which would refer to traveling as well as  exploration of the urban space. The map used in the background was a map drawn by my mother, who used to work as a cartographer for the Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality. Some  of the photos are from the blog, and are accompanied by the short passages.
