Internship: Room for Art

On May 30, my internship at United Nations Development Programme in Europe and Central Asia began. Two amazing and interesting weeks of work and leisure are already in the past. I’m more than happy to enjoy not only the new environment of Istanbul, but also to have chances of learning something new about local culture, including art, music, food, and mentality. The exhibition ‘First Seen from the Lentz Collection’ with works by Matts Leiderstam (b. 1956, Gothenburg) reminded me about Sweden because it was supported in part by Consulate General of Sweden, Istanbul. Leiderstam uses a tropical scenery photograph, taken during United States Navy’s expedition in Panama in 1870–71, and combines this print with a book and his own text.
