Margherita Moscardini will discuss the rapid transformation of Istanbul in relation to neoliberal building projects in the city. Her multimedia research project Istanbul City Hills – On the Natural History of Dispersion and States of Aggregation looks at Istanbul’s waste−particularly the glass debris leftover from the city’s large-scale demolitions−as representative of the many complex socio-political conditions in the city. Moscardini will be in conversation with Kari Conte, Director of Programs and Exhibitions, ISCP.
Free and open to the public.
