The exhibition avoided the usual unflattering political connotations the region’s name inevitably brings up but instead focused on a natural phenomenon — the wind. The exhibition title refered to the well-known saying in Turkish: “Cold wind blowing from the Balkans” which conveys winter's arrival and is most commonly used in television weather reports.
