100 Years of Now. The Opening
2015, Sep 30–Oct 04
Judith Raum, artist, Berlin with Susanne Sachsse artist & director
In her artistic research, Judith Raum has explored the German influence on the economy and culture of the Ottoman Empire in the years before World War I, looking especially for narratives of alternative economies and local resistance against rationalization and modernization. In 1888, Deutsche Bank, just recently founded, was awarded the concession to build the Anatolian Railway and later the Baghdad Railway, evoking a whole series of colonial and capitalist phantasies.
