Chalayan’s work ‘Imminence of Desire’ examines Istanbul’s place within a cultural and historical context. Over thousands of years, Istanbul has had over 150 names, each of which reflects a particular culture’s attachment to the city. These diverse cultures have at one time or another made claim to the city’s identity and asserted their own idea of what the city represents.
