Istanbul. Passion, Joy, Fury

MAXXI National Museum of the 21st Century Arts


December 11, 2015


April 30, 2016

The exhibition Istanbul. Passion, Joy, Fury at MAXXI National Museum of the 21st Century Arts in Rome presents work by over 40 artists, architects and designers from Istanbul, exploring the dynamics, changes and cultural demands of contemporary Turkey.

Five major themes run through the exhibition: urban transformations, political conflicts and resistance, innovative models of production, geopolitical urgencies, and hope.

The works themselves are presented in seven different chapters, each with its own space and each answering to a different question: “A Rose Garden?”, “Should We Work Hard?”, “Ready for a Change?”, “Home for All?”, “Tomorrow, Really?”, “Can We Fight Back?”, and “To Build or Not to Build?”.
