An Innocent City: Modest Musings on Everyday Istanbul

An Innocent City: Modest Musings on Everyday Istanbul is an exhibition presenting the stories and illustrations of the everyday objects of Istanbul. Graduate students from Koç University chose 12 objects from the Museum of Innocence in Çukurcuma and searched the streets of Istanbul to find the lives of these objects.  Each student has created a narration of Istanbul unique to them, pondering over everyday objects such as a key or a bottle of the popular fizzy drink “gazoz.” The stories are of multiple Istanbuls - of today, of the recent past, and of one shrouded in nostalgia. A book published by Yapı Kredi Publications —containing essays of Ian Alden Russell, Oscar Ho, Pat Cooke, a postcard from Mark Dion and the stories of 12 objects—accompanies the exhibition.
