Istanbul Design Biennial 2012: Open Call



The first edition of the Istanbul Design Biennial will be realized between 13 October–12 December 2012 by the Istanbul Foundation for Culture and Arts (IKSV), and will comprise a wide range of events, workshops, conferences and screenings centred around its exhibitions program. The Biennial’s two curators, Emre Arolat and Joseph Grima, will independently curate two exhibitions within the framework of the biennial theme, Imperfection, adopted at the suggestion of Deyan Sudjic, Director of The Design Museum in London and a member of the Biennial’s advisory board. The Biennial solicits submissions, proposals and recommendations for each of the exhibitions.

The full exhibition outlines and submission guidelines can be reviewed on the website of the Istanbul Design Biennial.
Adhocracy (curated by Joseph Grima)
Musibet (curated by Emre Arolat)

Istanbul Design Biennial explores a wide range of fields, from urban design (environmental, urban and regional planning) to architecture, photography, industrial, graphic, fashion, textile and interaction design, and all related creative fields. There are therefore no disciplinary or geographic limitations to the projects that can be submitted for inclusion in the Biennial.

The deadline for submissions is June 2nd, 2012.

A full list of pre-events, workshops and activities can be found on the Biennial website.
