Between Empires, Beyond Borders

The War and Armistice Years through the Eyes of the Köpe Family

September 15, 2020 – December 27, 2020
Admission free of charge.

SALT Beyoğlu, İstiklâl Caddesi 136, Beyoğlu, Istanbul


Between Empires, Beyond Borders delves into the memories of the Köpe family, who witnessed the Ottoman Empire’s modernisation as well as its withdrawal from the world stage.

The visual narrative of the exhibition is based on detailed archival records spanning the Second Constitutional Era, the First World War and the Armistice Period that followed. Carefully preserved personal documents of the family members, whose lives took shape across Brassó, Istanbul, Thessaloniki, Edirne and Konya, shed light on the milestones of political, social and diplomatic history.

Developed by Nefin Dinç (James Madison University), Erol Ülker (Işık University) and Lorans Tanatar Baruh (SALT), the exhibition is supported by the Hungarian Cultural Center in Istanbul.
