Barış Doğrusöz: Locus of Power

March 15, 2021 – March 27, 2021

SALT Galata, Bankalar Caddesi 11, Karaköy, Istanbul


Presented for the first time as part of The Sequential, a programme of five independent presentations at SALT Galata through 2021, Barış Doğrusöz’s Locus of Power video trilogy examines the culture as well as the economic and political history of the ancient city Dura-Europos in Deir ez-Zor, also known as the “Pompeii of the Syrian desert.” The multimedia installation based on the reconstruction of the site looks at the aesthetics of ruins, representation, and rereading of colonial discourse on the basis of museology and archaeology.

On March 16 (19.00, Istanbul time), Zainab Bahrani is in conversation with the artist. The talk will be broadcast online on the SALT YouTube channel.
