In New York this past summer — hiding amid the gods and heroes of the Met’s blowout exhibition of Hellenistic sculpture — was an ardent, astounding suite of pen drawings of a temple’s ruins, sketched by an amateur two hundred miles from Constantinople. “We have found an entire artistic epoch!” the German engineer Carl Humann exulted at Pergamon, and he was savvy enough to know it despite having no archaeological training of any kind. Humann was a road planner, surveying the western extreme of Asia when he stumbled upon the remains of the ancient capital in the late 19th century. You can visit his grave on a hillside in Turkey, a country where history — as the artist Aslı Çavuşoğlu explains in this issue — has become a literal battlefield. He might remind you that the past is everyone’s business, and that modern life requires a constant excavation.
