How Did We Get Here

3 September - 29 November 2015

How Did We Get Here traces the origins of the current context of Turkey at this turning point, in relation to the recent past and via elements of popular culture and social movements that took hold after the coup d'état. Works in the exhibition by Halil Altındere, Serdar Ateşer, Aslı Çavuşoğlu, Barış Doğrusöz, Ayşe Erkmen, Esra Ersen, and Hale Tenger deal with the political and cultural climate of the 1980s, to contribute a broader understanding of the national struggles and social dynamics it entailed.
