    This very popular walk brings you through the back streets of the 500 year old Grand Bazaar past the touristy clutter and into the areas where time stands still. We go through it's narrow passages, a labyrinth of streets, onto its rooftops and into its dignified Byzantine Caravansaries, where we visit Armenian silversmiths and Kurdish textile wholesalers. Unusual shops and so much more.

    A delight for the eyes, from the crowds to oases of silence.

    We are fortunate to have Monica Fritz with us to make this day a most memorable experience in Istanbul. Monica delights in sharing her curiosity and enthusiasm exploring the subtleties of the city.

    Optional lunch (not included in the price) in a local kebabci and a chance to shop at the end.

    Flux, an exhibition featuring Marina Abramovic + MAI (Marina Abramovic Institute) opens at Sabancı University Sakıp Sabancı Museum (SSM).  The exhibition will constitute Turkey's first large-scale retrospective of Marina Abramovic, who is one of the pioneers of performance art in the world.

    The exhibition consists of three sections. The first section will feature video and photographic documentation of Marina Abramovic's iconic performances, to represent the artist's 50-year career. The second section of the exhibition will present performance projects both submitted to an open call launched in August 2019 for practicing artist working in all forms of performances, as well as artists invited to participate in the exhibition. FLUX will be concluded by the section dedicated to "The Abramovic Method," where visitors will be invited to participate in a unique experience through exercises Abramovic developed for the public.  Created over decades of research on performance and immaterial art, Marina Abramovic deems  "The Method" to be her masterpiece, and the audience will hold a central place in the section where they will be presented with new experiences. "The Abramovic Method" is a large scale, public participatory event joining people in a communal experience to connect with oneself and with each other, and an exploration of being present in both time and space through exercises that focus on breath, motion, stillness, and concentration. 

    Please do spare at least an extra hour after the end of the guided exhibition for the performances and interactive floor to experience "The Abramovic Method."

    Our IWI Partner Banu Küçüksubaşı, a professional Art Historian and Tour Guide, will provide an enlightening guided tour of this special exhibition. 

    We hope that you will take this opportunity to enjoy a most pleasant cultural afternoon. For those who may be interested in having a late lunch or snack, there is a very nice restaurant in the museum premises.
