Independent Art Spaces in Dialogue
Exhibitions and Events

July 4 through August 16 2009

Opening: Friday, July 3, from 7 p.m.
Welcome Address: Dr. Franz Schulz, District Mayor Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg

Istanbul-Off-Spaces exhibition and event in Kunstraum Kreuzberg/Bethanien is meant to draw attention to a phenomenon that has arisen in recent years: the increasing number and growing influence of project groups and independent non-commercial art spaces in Istanbul.
In Istanbul, art project spaces act as important locations for social discourse and discussions about civil society. As a result of increasing internationalization, but also as a consequence of growing independence and burgeoning self-awareness, locations, publishers, magazines and players in the field of contemporary visual arts have established themselves as outstanding elements of social and political discourse in Istanbul.
The activities in Berlin are aimed at initiating a dialogue between these projects and their protagonists offering a presentation platform in Berlin.
