Bomba

BY KEREM PIKER
@ VOL 14 ON MAY 24, 2012

Kerem Piker speaks about his project, Bomba, a report on a fictional, accidental 1943 bombing of Istanbul by the Allies, and the three politically and socially significant landmarks his fictional history reports as destroyed. In doing so, he questions how these sites have become important, and what nonfictional accidents are responsible for their present images.
