The exhibition “Splendour of Anatolia” takes place in Kunsthal Rotterdam 2 February – 1 June 2008.
The exhibition includes rare kilims , various furnished nomadic tents, a traditionally harnessed camel and attractive film material of the nomadic culture in Anatolia. The colourful kilims are a part of internationally renowned private collections. The kilims are woven by nomadic people – Turkmens, Yoruks and Kurds – living in the mountainous areas of Anatolia. The geometrical patterns of the kilims are typical for Islamic art.
The exhibition will be accompanied by the catalogue Nomads in Anatolia written and published by Harald Böhmer.
