SALT Interpretation invites high school students to participate in “Memory Palace,” a workshop organized within the scope of Gülsün Karamustafa’s A Promised Exhibition at SALT Beyoğlu. Led by artist Hera Büyüktaşçıyan, the workshop will focus on notions of personal, social and spatial memory, and immigration, themes that Karamustafa investigates in her practice.

After an exhibition tour led by the SALT Interpretation team, students will examine the history and recollection of the Siniossoglou Apartment (today’s SALT Beyoğlu) and consider different stories around this subject. In the second part of the workshop, each student will make her/his own scrapbook by incorporating diverse materials, such as visual references from SALT Research and the Ottoman Bank Archive. At the end of the process, these scrapbooks will be brought together to create an archival installation.

Hera Büyüktaşçıyan (İstanbul, 1984) graduated from Marmara University, Faculty of Fine Arts, Painting Department. Her works mainly focus on notions of “the other,” belonging, identity and memory.

Each workshop will be held in Turkish and is limited to 16 students.
