Re-Imagining Asia: Exhibition

Spaces of the Imagination

The continent on the other side of the Bosporus has always been an endlessly inspiring source of images as well as a screen for our projections. For a long time, however, only the Western view of a more-or-less Far East was accepted. How can we see Asia differently?

Exhibition, film series, conference, Open House and exhibition catalogue are funded by
