Stored Memory

The first legendary stadium concerts and big festivals in Turkey started in the 90s and continued into the new millennium. Those who lived it look back at the period with a strong sense of nostalgia, while younger generations perceive it as an important turning point in the cultural history of the country. 212 Photography Istanbul opens a nostalgic music box that is bound to evoke different emotions in all of us. Composed of four sections, the exhibition uses archive footage, photographs, and news compiled to provide a chronological narrative that refreshes the memory. Footage and images from stadium concerts by Metallica, Guns N’ Roses, Madonna, Scorpions, Michael Jackson, and Pearl Jam and the post-millennium multi-stage weekend Festivals like H2000, Rock’n Coke, Radar, and Sonisphere refresh the memory.
