About

Consuming the Exotic is an exhibition by postgrad Oxford students of Architecture. It's concerned with questioning the environmental consequences of our current fetish for experiencing foreign culture. It does this by focusing on a visit to Istanbul and Cappadocia, Turkey by 17 young architect-tourists in November 2012. The exhibition will showcase photography and short videos from the field visit exploring the intersection of Turkish culture in relation to space. The exhibition expands ideas found in Uncivilisation: The Dark Mountain Manifesto (Kingsnorth & Hine, 2010), Edward Bellamy's (1888) Looking Backward and Alain de Botton's (2003) The Art of Travel. A travelogue book of photographs recording the cultural excursion titled Consuming the Exotic: Young Architect-Tourists in Turkey will be available for purchase at the exhibition. The exhibition is curated by the Oxford Brookes University architecture students, Andrew Dawson and Igea Troiani.
