17 August – Journey to the Centre of the East 1850-1950



A new exhibition focuses on 100 years of travellers in Istanbul, documenting the early (from a modern perspective) Western visitors, the journeyers in the age of steam and rail who wanted to explore the ‘exotic East’. Based on materials selected from the vast collection of Pierre de Gigord, one of the leading collectors of Ottoman-era photographs and ephemera in the world, the exhibition sheds light upon early years of mass tourism that replaced individual journeys of discovery, and the transformation of travel culture. The exhibition can be visited at The Istanbul Research Centre between 10 a.m. and 7 p.m. until 17 October. (Closed on Sundays)
