Innocence of Memories Orhan Pamuk’s Museum and Istanbul


Orhan Pamuk – Turkey’s Nobel laureate for Literature – opens a museum in Istanbul. A museum that’s a fiction: its objects trace a tale of doomed love in 1970’s Istanbul. Innocence of Memories takes a tour of the objects as the starting point for a trip through love stories, landscapes and the chemistry of the city.
