Within the scope of its ten-year anniversary celebrations, Istanbul Modern presents Neighbours—Contemporary Narratives from Turkey and Beyond, an exhibition that explores a specific common thread that runs through art made today in a vast geography, extending from Eastern Europe to Asia and from the Caucasus to the Middle East.
Neighbours addresses the issues that are rooted in particular political visions—in the etymological sense of politics—as pertaining to the “polis.”
The exhibition focuses on an art that relates to vernacular forms like oral tradition and popular theater—forms that are at the crossroads of social interaction and expressions of individual voices in the public domain.
