Invitation of the Event:
The Museum of Innocence, in Istanbul (Turkey)
Opened in April 2012, The Museum of Innocence is the first and only museum created from the writing of a literary work. Conceived by the Nobel Prize for Literature Orhan Pamuk, space has unique character within the museums devoted to authors and literary themes. This is because it was not installed in the former residence of a writer, was neither designed retrospectively to capitalize on the success of a classical work.
Unlike, a museum was born from the very act of writing, as explained by its creator, the Nobel Prize for Literature Orhan Pamuk: “I wrote this novel collecting, at the same time, the objects I describe in the book”.
In the book Museum of Innocence, released in 2008 and edited in Brazil 2011, by Companhia das Letras, the protagonist-narrator, Kemal, starts fetishistic collection of mementos of his beloved Fussun, impregnated stealing objects of his aura, as a cup of tea, earrings, clothing and even the butts (thousands of them) Cigarettes smoked it. And ends by organizing a museum dedicated to the memory of deceased.
In real life, Pamuk followed the example of his character, buying a house in the neighborhood where Fussun supposedly lived in fiction, to create a museum with the same title as the book, in which 83 display cases correspond to 83 chapters of romance.
