ISTANBUL’74 presents Random Forest (A Reading Room), a site-specific exhibition by Jonah Freeman & Justin Lowe with Boo-Hooray, which opened on 15 September 2022. Running parallel to the 17th Istanbul Biennial, the exhibition will be on view through November at Nef Bebeköy.

Inspired by William S. Burroughs’ The Electronic Revolution, the New York artist duo Freeman & Lowe take over a 19th century building in Istanbul and transform the space into a reading room. Conceived as an anachronistic vessel, the exhibition frames a group of artists, writers and musicians who have taken the language, the word and the book as a basis for broad methods for cut-up, collage and disruption.
