İnönü Foundation is commemorating the 90th anniversary of the Treaty of Lausanne by a comprehensive, interactive exhibition.
The exhibition, through a series of documents and photographs from the Inonu Foundation archive, sheds light on a crucial period of Turkish History during which various social, cultural and economic changes took place, and aims at the observation of these changes within the context of the perspective of İnönü, dating from the signing of the Treaty of Lausanne to the Declaration of Republic, through the early years of the Republic and the internal and foreign politics of the time.
The exhibition adorned with new media technologies is curated by Prof. Dr. Zafer Toprak and designed by Cagdas Arpac and Dr. Fatma Ture. The visitors will be able to interactively explore the documents and the photographs in detail through video installations and touch screen displays.
The exhibition consists of four main sections: Life of Ismet Inonu, Mustafa Kemal Ataturk and Ismet Inonu, Treaty and Conference of Lausanne, Ismet Inonu and Internal-Foreign Politics. There’s also a kids section in the exhibition that consists of a 10 minute animation and three computer games called “Time Travel”.
