The 13th Istanbul Biennial exhibitions, titled “Mom, am I Barbarian?”, curated by Fulya Erdemci will take place at Antrepo no.3, Galata Greek Primary School, ARTER, SALT Beyoğlu and 5533 between 14 September and 20 October 2013. The 13th Istanbul Biennial, “Mom, am I barbarian?”, which borrows its title from poet Lale Müldür’s book, will focus on the theme of public space as a political forum.
The biennial exhibitions will aspire to open up a space to rethink the concept of ‘publicness’ through art and elicit imagination and innovative thought to contribute to social engagement and discussion. Initially conceptualized to include many projects that would intervene with urban public spaces, the 13th Istanbul Biennial exhibitions will take place at interior venues as per the curatorial decision. 13th Istanbul Biennial curator Fulya Erdemci decided that under given circumstances realizing the urban public space projects might undermine their very essence and purpose, and it would be more meaningful for the exhibition to move away from urban public space.
The 13th Istanbul Biennial exhibitions can be visited free of charge between 14 September and 20 October at Antrepo no.3 in Tophane, Galata Greek Primary School in Karaköy, ARTER and SALT Beyoğlu on İstiklal Street and 5533 in İMÇ 5th Block.
