Milliyet Istanbul Culture and Arts Foundation (IKSV)

Our design for IKSV’s 13th Istanbul Biennale Milliyet Media Sponsorship takes excerpts from the poet Lale Müldür’s book Anne, Ben Barbar Mıyım? (Mom, am I a Barbarian?). The heading, chosen by the curator of IKSV’s 13th Istanbul Biennale, Fulya Erdemci, focused on poetry and literature and the relationship between poetry and art. The biennale contained works that unpacked the concepts of civilization and barbarism, and examined the role of art in this regard in new, unaccustomed vernaculars. For this biennale, we said, “Look at the biennale in this way.”
