- What’s On
This exhibition, curated by Cem Sorguç, focuses on the architecture of the home. In addition to touching upon the living space and usage habits, the show will depict the political economic journey of housing from the 19th century to date.
Humans have always needed shelter, yet the question of who is responsible for housing has been unanswered for years. We’ve lost track of whether it is a problem of shelter, a problem pertaining to the city, an architectural design problem, an interior problem of living spaces, or if it comprises all of these issues.
Rather than trying to answer these questions, Don’t Be Late Home strives to crystalise them. It endeavours to put forth the reasons behind the emergence of these questions and the answers the human being has sought within the context of cities and the environment. The show features work by Ceren Oykut, Cevdet Erek, Deniz Cem Önduygu, Hilmi Tezgör, İdil Ergün, İpek Akpınar and Funda Uz.
This is the fifth VitrA Contemporary Architecture Series exhibition held at Istanbul Modern. The aim of the project is to document and discuss the milieu of contemporary architecture in Turkey and provide a platform for new studies in the field by concentrating on different types of buildings.
