Commissioners' Exhibition

Conceived by SALT, Commissioners' Exhibition studies this critical relationship between the architect and the commissioner through a number of buildings contracted by private and public entities in Ankara, Çanakkale, Denizli, Izmir, and Istanbul from 1930s to 2010s. The selection focuses on commissioners' influence over works of architecture with narrations featuring original archival documents and interviews. Their instrumental potential to initiate novelties, a much more important trait than the ability to provide resources, is argued via the personal archive of Özer Türk—a bureaucrat who vitalized early stages of tourism during his administrative posts across the Aegean between 1963 and 1975.
