Led by writer and storyteller Ekin Can Göksoy, the workshop examines the changes and continuities in the urban dweller’s perspective of the city, from Late Medieval and Early Modern maps to contemporary photography. The workshop explores the historical transformation of methods of perception before and during the transition to modernity, as well as the evolution of viewing methods that emerged with technological advancements.
