ISTANBUL (Public Radio of Armenia)—A new exhibition at Istanbul’s Depo gallery takes a closer look at personal and communal affiliations in the Armenian diaspora, “scattered like pomegranate seeds across the world.”

“Grandchildren: New Geographies of Belonging” opened today at Depo in Istanbul’s Tophane neighborhood, and will run until November 1, the Hurriyet Daily News reports.

“In a global context where mobility and the virtual world challenge established identifications with national societies, ethnic groups or religions, Armenians can be considered a good example of a group with a long, cosmopolitan and globalized history,” Depo says about the show on its website. The exhibition includes works from Armenian artists based around the world. It is coordinated by Silvina Der-Meguerditchian and organized in cooperation with the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, the Federal Foreign Office Germany, the Goethe Institut- Istanbul, Anadolu Kultur, the Cultural Academy Tarabya, and Heinrich Boll Stiftung.

The works of Achot Achot (Yerevan/Paris), Marian Bedoian (Buenos Aires), Talin Buyukkurkciyan (Istanbul), Hera Buyuktasciyan (Istanbul), Silvina Der-Meguerditchian (Buenos Aires/Berlin), Linda Ganjian (New York), Archi Galentz (Moscow/Berlin), Karine Matsakyan (Yerevan)  Mikayel Ohanjanyan (Yerevan/Florenz), Ani Setyan (Istanbul), Arman Tadevosyan (Gyumri/Nancy), Scout Tufankjian (New York) and Marie Zolamian (Beirut/Liege) are included in the exhibition.
