Focusing on an Istanbulite family in the years 1900-1940, Dismantling the Archive: Representation, Identity, Memory in an Ottoman Family is a thought-provoking exhibition about the writing of history and the archiving process. The show, encompassing three generations from the late Ottoman period through the early Turkish Republic, provides clues to the social and political life of the period in photographs, documents and objects. At SALT Galata through March 23rd.
