Between Waters, Winds, and Fields is a screening program accompanying the exhibition Notes on Air at Salt Beyoğlu. The selection features artist films that explore how the interconnectedness of air, water, and landscape forms the very fabric of human existence and engage with pressing environmental issues. 

The program takes inspiration from Hippocrates’s De aere, aquis et locis [On Airs, Waters, and Places], a treatise that delves into the complex interrelations between climate, ecological resources, the built environment, and daily practices. Focusing on the social, political, and ecological facets behind air toxicity, the selection weaves together a larger narrative that captures the entanglement of human and non-human beings.

The films will be shown in three slots during the exhibition and will be on a loop on the second floor of Salt Beyoğlu. All films will be screened in their original language with Turkish subtitles.
