Ece Agenda

December 10, 2014 – January 31, 2015


This exhibition traces the century-old history of the iconic Ece Ajandası diary.

Based on research on the Kağıtçı family, who created the Ece Agendası, the show comprises photographs, documents and samples of the diary which belonged to renowned intellectuals such as Yakup Kadri Karaosmanoğlu and Füsun Erbulak. First published in 1910 under the name ‘Muhtıra’ and renamed ‘Ece’ in 1932, the agenda was published alongside the most significant markers of 20th century history in Turkey: the decay of the Ottoman Empire and the founding of the Republic, two world wars, and various economic and social depressions. Ece Agendası has been on millions of people’s desks, from famous writers and intellectuals, to politicians and businessmen.

This exhibition is accompanied by a book which is available for purchase from the gallery.

Afitap in Karaköy sells these iconic diaries.
