Salt Beyoğlu

September 13 – December 31, 2011

A program of events including lectures, tours, presentations and performances seeking to answer questions around contemporary Istanbul, 90 will be held on the second floor of SALT Beyoğlu between September 13 and December 31. The events, taking place Tuesdays to Saturdays, will focus on topics of interest to the city’s residents.

90 was developed in parallel with Becoming Istanbul, SALT’s second comprehensive exhibition. During the project, 90 events will be organized to share the phenomena and potential of the city, with the aim to resist an exclusionist or “expert” stance through a broad profile of speakers and diverse array of topics. The topics of 90 will range from the possibility of producing energy in Istanbul using the waters of the Black Sea, to the reasons why the same musical tune is used in every demonstration in Beyoğlu.

Those wishing to contribute to the development of 90 can propose topics and speakers by posting suggestions in the box found in the Forum of SALT Beyoğlu, or on the Facebook page “SALT Online – Proje Istanbul”.
