Hacivat and Karagöz


Sound Effects



3 Dimentional Cinema


You can see the 3D Cinema installation, where ten-minute sections from two important works of Turkish cinema can be viewed three dimensionally, as well as the holograms of four film scenes featuring important actors such as Adile Naşit and Münir Özkul.


Karagöz and Hacivat have an earlier place in the history of cinema as our traditional shadow play, which has an important place in our childhood. Within this installation, visitors can create their own shadow play. You can discover the funny dialogues between Karagöz and Hacivat with the digital application through the touch screen.


In the Exterior Led Application on the facade of the building, an artistic work with portraits of various actors prepared with artificial intelligence invites visitors to the museum on Istiklal Street.

In addition, additional information can be obtained with the video narrations in many showcases about the objects exhibited and their historical importance.


The installation, which visitors will encounter while climbing the stairs, reflects an artistic work and the phenomenon of motion in the cinema from the beginning with films in an analog manner, transforming us into a tool that carries us to the future. It makes a reference to technology, which only gains sense when people enter the equation.
