A bilingual (Turkey/English) audiovisual exhibition will be held in ANAMED (Koç University’s Research Center for Anatolian Civilizations) in Istanbul. It will incorporate data from our archaeobotanical research and our collaborative workshops, highlighting sustainable food practices over the longue durée and the current struggle with modernity.
Through this exhibition, we aim to raise awareness of Turkey’s current struggle with modernity and the way this challenge is being addressed in different communities within the country. Designed as a two-way engagement system, digital devices at the conclusion of the exhibition will contain a survey. In the survey visitors will be able to provide feedback on the exhibition and they will be asked to reflect upon the way the struggle with modernity has impacted their own lives and altered their relationship with food.
