Hera Büyüktaşçıyan / Chto Delat? / Shilpa Gupta / Kapwani Kiwanga / Maha Maamoun / Jumana Manna & Sille Storihle / Yasemin Özcan / Didem Pekün / Judith Raum / Dilek Winchester / Erinç Aslanboğa, Natalie Heller & Bahar Temiz 

A Century of Centuries gathers an unfolding sequence of solo artistic positions shown in dialogue, formed in response to transformative moments, traumatic experiences and social transitions of the past that continue to resonate in and shape the present. The artists were chosen for bodies of production, or major video works that explore the lasting effects of key periods and events within the longer trajectory of time they inhabit.

Four new works, or developments to ongoing research, were commissioned in the building up of this program. These include interventions by Hera Büyüktaşçıyan, Didem Pekün and Dilek Winchester; and a series of lecture performances titled Trailer by dance artists Erinç Aslanboğa, Natalie Heller and Bahar Temiz, which look into notions of personal and collective memory, staged in the frame of the exhibition. Trailer (2015) takes place between until April 3, Wednesday and Friday at 18.30h, and Sunday at 16.30h.

Judith Raum’s participation has been organized in cooperation with the Goethe-Institut Istanbul.

*Translation of blackboard text in image (Armenian alphabet): “Their neighbor’s daughter was the first friend he ever remembered having. She was a few years older than him. When she was at school, he was bored because he couldn’t find anyone to play with. When he started school, he realized that he wasn’t taught the same letters. He still remembers how disappointed he felt then.”
