‘No past no future…’
Asst. Prof. Dilek Himam, gave information about the exhibition and said that starting point for the exhibition was Steampunk, a sub-culture movement that came out towards the end of 1980’s, Himam stated the following:
“Steampunk movement presents a mixed aesthetical approach that combines steam-powered machinery of the Industrial Revolution with theVictorian era aesthetics. This approach was misinterpreted in the recent years by different creative industries. Steampunk: Retro Future Exhibition, as a contemporary interpretation to this, raises awareness to a 21st century whose future is in danger due to consumption mania. ‘Steampunk’ expresses a longing for the fantasy world of the society. Toys, figurines from waste materials and costumes from rags are a reflection of otherness that has neither past nor future.”
