Exhibition opening and tasting session

– Sponsored by Taps Brewery –
Julie Upmeyer created the â€˜Two Times Tartâ€™, encouraging new taste combinations and geographical arrangements. In collaboration with Mehmet Ekiz and the Bereket Borek Solonu, she created specially designed tart shells, in the shape of a half circle. Upmeyer invited individuals living in Turkey, Armenia, Bulgaria, Syria, Iran, Greece, Georgia, Azerbaijan and Iraq to submit a sweet-tasting recipe to go inside the tart shells.
Here in Istanbul, you can taste these sweets, choosing for yourself which two countries you wish to combine.
â€˜Two Times Tartâ€™ is a part of the Love Difference Pastry Network, a developing project using sweets to connect people, cultures and ideas. Initiated by Cittadelarte and Love Difference â€“ Artistic Movement for an InterMediterranean Politic.
Caravansarai is a physical and virtual space for arts and culture events. It is home to the internet-based TV station ‘Caravansarai Istanbul TV’ – CITV and many ongoing projects including â€˜The Virtual Chefâ€™ : international cooking in Istanbul, connected live to a remote chef. Caravansarai is open to individuals and projects, local, virtual and international collaborations.
