SITUATIONS - International Project Reunion: 9th Istanbul Biennial

SItuations launches a new series of project reunions, bringing key participants from a recent international exhibition back together to reflect on the project from conception to final outcome. Moderated by curator Anders Kreuger, this series will offer the opportunity to explore a recent exhibition from the perspective of different artists, curators, participants and critics. Each event will give an insight into the context of the project and the curatorial and artistic processes involved, whilst also creating opportunities to explore what the participants might have done differently.

The second in this series of reunions will focus on the 9th Istanbul Biennial, which took place from 16 Sep to 30 Oct 2005. For the first time the Biennial was developed through a working collaboration between the director of van Abbemuseum, Charles Esche, and the director of Platform Garanti CAC, Vasif Kortun. Esche and Kortun worked together on an exhibition structure that sought to "fold out of and reveal its context - the city of Istanbul." Esche and Kortun will be joined by exhibiting artists Solmaz Shahbazi and Hüseyin Alptekin to reflect on this significant exhibition, visited by some 51,000 people and praised by Frieze magazine as "one of the highlights of 2005".
