1295_460SALT continues to invite others to reinterpret the Hüseyin Bahri Alptekin Collection, which consists of the artist’s archive and books, located at SALT Galata. So far four installations have been realized, by Alptekin’s spouse Camila Rocha and by three of Alptekin’s friends Ahmet Şenkart, Özgür Uçkan and Luchezar Boyadjiev. The fifth project, titled Index and Circulation: Driftmentary, is undertaken by the Grup Grip-in Collective whose members Ali Cindoruk, Eray Makal and Erhan Muratoğlu had participated in diverse projects and exhibitions with Alptekin.

Index and Circulation: Driftmentary aims to draw interrelations between the indexical and artistic approach of Alptekin. The listing available in the Café at SALT Galata represents the whole archive, while the objects and images displayed in SALT Research examine the relationship between the index and archive. This approach enables the viewer to navigate his/her own path through the concepts that Alptekin often referred to, such as circulation, heterotopia, intertextuality and appropriation.

The Grup Grip-in Collective members Ali Cindoruk, Eray Makal and Erhan Muratoğlu will give a talk about the project Index and Circulation: Driftmentary which they reinterpreted Hüseyin Bahri Alptekin archive at SALT Galata.
