BLIND DATES PROJECT
Blind Dates aims to tackle with the traces or ‘what remains’ of the peoples, places and cultures that once constituted the diverse geography of the Ottoman Empire (1299-1922). Taking the breakup of the latter’s complex history as a point of departure, and considering the subsequent formation of nation states throughout the region, the exhibition is an attempt to explore the effects of various forms of ruptures, gaps, erasures as well as (re)constructions, including continuities within discontinuities, through the prism of contemporary lived-experiences. Diasporas or transnational cultural cartographies that offer non conventional temporal and spatial configurations are also of particular interest to Blind Dates.
