Prisoners of Correct History

Naeem Mohaiemen

January 23, 2019 – April 28, 2019

SALT Beyoğlu, İstiklâl Caddesi 136, Beyoğlu, Istanbul


Historian Naeem Mohaiemen explores Bangladesh’s complicated postcolonial journey through films, installations, and essays in this exhibition. He examines the role of unreliable memory throughout historical narratives using newsreel footage, found photographs and contemporary restagings.

Spanning two floors and the cinema space, Prisoners of Correct History assembles a narrative of shared myths to tell stories of loss and failure, with a glimmer of hope, which serves as a caution about future politics. Throughout, viewers are forced to consider which perspective to trust on the slippery slope of truth.
