About lstanbul Biennial

The 16th Istanbul Biennial, organised by the Istanbul Foundation for Culture and Arts (İKSV), will take place between 14 September and 10 November 2019. The 16th edition of the Biennial will be curated by French curator, art scholar and writer Nicolas Bourriaud. Titled "The Seventh Continent", the 16th Istanbul Biennial will be an anthropology of an off-centred world and an archaeology of our times. It defines today’s art as an archipelago of diverse enquiries into global life, tracking the prints of human activity on the earth and our impact on its non-human inhabitants.

Bourriaud stated, “I am very honoured to be able to contribute to the history of Istanbul Biennial, which has always been a place of strong curatorial statements since its creation in 1987. Also, as a crossing point, the city of Istanbul takes a specific signification today, in a global political era marked by binary thought. I will try to build an exhibition that measures up to our historical situation.”
