ISTANBUL FRAGMENTED 2005  invites abstract and poster proposals.

The purpose of ISTANBUL FRAGMENTED ?05 is to provide an experimental discussion platform on urban representation for experts in the cultural fields to compare

a series of speculative recent approaches by the young researchers from across

the humanities and social sciences. ISTANBUL FRAGMENTED ?05 will be an

opportunity to enhance interdisciplinary ties between those in the academic

world exploring ideas of city, and those practitioners and organizations

focused on urban works.

The theme of the city fragmented places emphasis on urban design models and

ideals, contrasting with the diversity of cities and urban situations. In this

context, ISTANBUL FRAGMENTED ?05 is a platform in conceiving the city as a

place for the intersection of historical and cultural identities, and in

representing the city through the media of photography in particular as well as

literature, art, film and performance.

ISTANBUL FRAGMENTED ?05 coincides with the 9th International Istanbul Biennale between 16 September- 30 October 2005, co-curated by Charles Esche and Vasif Kortun. The title of the Biennale is ?Istanbul? refferring both to the real urban location and the imaginative charge that this city represents for the world.

Combining a symposium in the format of round table discussions and a series of

wokshops in the field of urban-architecture-landscape-art, the organizers have

sought to develop a programme that will look beyond the familiar images of

cities and focus rather on the past-today-future of the city with a challenging

approach.

The Conference will address the following sub-themes:

1.  representation of Istanbul by a foreigner : the past

moderator: Vasif Kortun

the role of visual and textual documentation of the local by a foreigner,

exploration the power of urban representation via photography in particular.
