The 7th International Istanbul Biennial organised by the Istanbul Foundation for Culture and Arts will take place between 21 September 17 November 2001. The 7th Biennial will be curated by Yuko Hasegawa under the title EGOFUGAL: Fugue from Ego for the Next Emergence.

The 7th International Istanbul Biennial will raise the question of How can we liberate ourselves from our egos while maintaining self-esteem? Egofugality is not selflessness, or self-sacrifice, or compromise. Yuko Hasegawa perceives Egofugality, as a worldview in the three “c” visions, which are collective consciousness, collective intelligence and co-existence verified by strong egofugal subjects. The three c elements will eventually replace the three m elements man, money and materialism that played key roles in the progress of 20th century civilisation and which simultaneously spawned considerable problems and sickness. The 7th International Istanbul Biennial will emerge by involving the audiences consciousness through works, which propose the aforementioned potentials.

The 7th International Istanbul Biennial will host 63 artists including 9 collaborative groups.
