Orhan Pamuk. Der Trost der Dinge

In the organizer's words:

As the first Turkish winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature (2006), Orhan Pamuk is one of the most important literary and political voices of our time. But the world-famous author has also long been known as an illustrator, photographer, museum founder and curator of objects and memories. In the exhibition "The Consolation of Things", Orhan Pamuk shows 40 cabinets from his Istanbul "Museum of Innocence" and allows them to enter into a dialog with the Lenbachhaus collection. In addition, new works are being created especially for the exhibition, which are interwoven with Pamuk's other novels in an examination of the Lenbachhaus collection and artists such as Paul Klee and Alfred Kubin.

Pamuk's hitherto largely unknown side as a visual artist will be presented to the public for the first time in further series of works. A selection of his paintings, drawings, sketchbooks and notebooks as well as photographs provide a very personal insight into his multi-layered oeuvre.
