Sarajevo, June 28, 2014. The manager of Hotel Europe is preparing a European Union Gala to mark one hundred years since the assassination of Franz Ferdinand – the shot that sparked WWI. The hotel staff, however, has not been paid in two months and plans to go on strike. The film based on the play of the French philosopher, journalist and writer Bernard-Henri Levy and the director Danis Tanović offers a satirical parable about political dreams and nightmares. His Hotel Europa, which he portrays from its cellar passageways right up to its sunlit roof terrace, becomes an arena of hope, violence, and death.

The various states of viewing nudity entered the Ottoman world on postcards before paintings. These postcards appeared in the 1890s, and became widespread in the 1910s, following the proclamation of the Second Constitutional Monarchy, traveling from hand to hand, city to city.

In the works of western painters, we encounter mosques as the primary architectural elements that reflect the identity of the city of Istanbul. Often we can recognize the depicted landscape as Istanbul simply from the mosques.

Each memory tells an intimate story; each collection presents us with the reality of containing an intimate story as well. The collection is akin to a whole in which many memories and stories of the artist, the viewer, and the collector are brought together. At the heart of a collection is memory, nurtured from the past and projecting into the future.
