The public program A Crack in the Wall, accompanying Salt’s Into the Unknown exhibition organized in collaboration with the Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw, begins on Thursday, July 28. Comprising screenings, talks, and a workshop, the program explores the relationship between art, the documentary form, and the use of archival material in a post-1989 world.

The program will include artist-writer Oleksiy Radinsky, researcher-art critic Nesli Gül Durukan, visual researcher-media artist Ege Berensel, filmmaker-writer Fırat Yücel, and a collaborative workshop with Istanbul Experimental and Andreas Treske. This series of events aims to explore the transformative potential of art through documentary and archival material and how such practices can trace certain gaps within collective memory, creating a ground for other, lesser-known subjectivities, representations, and historiographies.

A Crack in the Wall runs until August 11 and is programmed by Salt’s Research and Programs Director Fatma Çolakoğlu in collaboration with writer-editor Eda Sezgin. Further information can be accessed through saltonline.org and Salt’s social media accounts.
