Pamuk garners another gong

Orhan Pamuk

The Turkish writer Orhan Pamuk is being heaped with accolades. Pamuk, the winner of the 2006 Nobel Prize in literature, has won the 2014 Helena Vaz da Silva European Award for Raising Public Awareness on Cultural Heritage. The prize, established last year by the Lisbon-based Centro Nacional de Cultura in cooperation with the European heritage organisation Europa Nostra and Clube Português de Imprensa, “acknowledges exceptional contributions to the communication [sic.] on cultural heritage and European ideals”, says a pithy press statement. “Pamuk has made outstanding efforts towards raising awareness of the rich multicultural history and heritage of Europe, with Istanbul as one of its most iconic cities,” says Guilherme d’Oliveira Martins, the president of the jury. Pamuk's Istanbul-based Museum of Innocence was, meanwhile, named the European Museum of the Year in a ceremony held in Tallinn in May. The museum reflects each chapter of a novel of the same name, thereby covering a 30-year period in the history of modern Istanbul from 1975 when the book begins. “It is a museum like Stanislaw Lem’s Solaris is a planet, converting personality into glass display cabinets. It is also an act of remembering—in this case, the discreet charm of Istanbul’s bourgeoisie in the last quarter of the 20th century,” reported Andrew Finkel (The Art Newspaper, June 2012).
