Turkey and it’s eight neighbors reflected in a show
“1+8” chronicles the people and communities living on Turkey’s borders through their own stories as shot during two years of field research.Salt Galata is hosting an exhibition, “1+8,” featuring a dynamic eight-screen video installation about Turkey and its eight neighbors based on the feature film of the same name directed by Cynthia Madansky and Angelika Brudniak. Each screen features life on both sides of the border, from Armenia, Bulgaria, Georgia, Greece, Iran, Iraq, Nakhchivan to Syria.
“1+8” chronicles the people and communities living on Turkey’s borders through their own stories as shot by Madansky and Brudniak during two years of field research. The installation includes a vast amount of footage not included in the film, elevating “1+8” to a polyphony of voices that are ordinarily funneled through the lens of mainstream media and often only during a crisis or a catastrophe.
