2 or 3 things I know about Turkey

Mike Bode

March 29, 2018 – April 29, 2018

DEPO, Tütün Deposu, Lüleci Hendek Caddesi No.12, Tophane, Istanbul


Mike Bode’s solo exhibition explores two obscure and apparently unrelated topics: the composer İlhan Usmanbaş and the former Formula 1 race track in Tuzla, Akfırat. İlhan Usmanbaş is a 96-year-old experimental free-form composer whose innovations remain mostly unknown in Turkey. The Istanbul Park Formula 1 race track in Akfırat opened in 2005 and, despite being lauded, was closed only six years later. This research project melds these seemingly disparate topics into an coherent exhibition that explores the narratives and intersections of each subject.
