Curated by Refik Akyüz and Serdar Darendeliler, Istanbuls Today offers an attempt at a critical and creative visual interpretation of the period we live in, while also creating a space of discovery for photographers who have crossed paths with the current state of Istanbul, which has been photographed with passion, curiosity and excitement throughout history. Thus, it captures the diversity of photographers today.
The publication accompanying the exhibition includes the curatorial text by Refik Akyüz and Serdar Darendeliler,as well as articles penned for the catalogue by seven different academics, researchers and writers, who work, do research, think or create fiction about the subjects covered in the exhibition, inspired by the works of the exhibited artists. The publication also features illustrations of the displayed work, and presents biographies of the artists, curators and authors.
