The exhibition On the Spot: Panoramic Gaze on Istanbul, a History takes the allure and amazement of the 360-degree urban image as its starting point and moves on to historicize the power of this panoramic effect. It thinks through different media and materialities, following the variations of Istanbul’s representations from early modern printed views to massive displays in purpose-built London halls, as well as in the dining halls of Bosporus mansions.
In this event, exhibition curators Çiğdem Kafescioğlu, K. Mehmet Kentel and M. Baha Tanman will discuss the research process behind On the Spot, their selection of and approach towards historical material, as well as the excitement and challenges of preparing an exhibition on Istanbul panoramas.
The event in the Pera Museum Auditorium is free of charge and no need for reservations.
The exhibition aims to shed new light on the history of Istanbul’s representations through panoramic paintings and photographs. It critically approaches the history of the "panorama" and contextualizes its many iterations. While examining the layered relationships in the production and consumption of panoramic images, the exhibition also explores the circulation of these images among different audiences, their receptions, and the connections between various media that have gained popularity over centuries.
