Dismantling the Archive: Representation, Identity, Memory in an Ottoman Family

Dismantling the Archive focuses on the years 1900-1940 of the Said Bey Archive, encompassing three generations from the late Ottoman period up through the early years of the Republic of Turkey. The exhibition attempts to understand how a family, as it passed through a complicated process of transition, expressed and represented itself in writing, photography, music, narrations and material culture.

Works From The Collection of L’Internationale
The exhibition presents one work from each of the collections of L’Internationale partner museums, by artists: Marina Abramović, Vanessa Beecroft, Antoni Muntadas and Marshall Reese, Bruce Nauman and Allan Sekula. The selected works refer to issues of authoritarian power, media manipulation, debates around public space and gender politics. By gathering these positions together at this moment in time the exhibition aims to reflect upon local stories through the reading of five internationally renowned, iconic works.
