Istanbul: Akram Zaatari at SALT


The concept of archives is at the heart of the political and artistic activities of Akram Zaatari, co-founder of the Arab Image Foundation (AIF) in 1997, at a time when the spread of public and private collections across the Arab world threatened to erase the region’s visual patrimony. This Istanbul exhibition, organized by Salt, showcases the diversity of his artwork, which combines video, photography, installation, research and intervention. The layout plays a major role here. It makes the artist’s process - one reminiscent of archeology - intelligible while allowing the viewer to analyze the limits and paradoxes in the act of conservation.
