Next Stop of the 4th Istanbul Design Biennial Is Belgium

July 4, 2019 Destination Europe No Comments Email Email

Organised by the Istanbul Foundation for Culture and Arts (İKSV) and sponsored by VitrA, the 4th Istanbul Design Biennial collaborates with Z33 – House for Contemporary Art and C-mine Genk to bring over 100 projects exhibited at the biennial in the autumn of 2018 in Istanbul to Belgium. A continuation of the 4th Istanbul Design Biennial – A School of Schools after having shown in Istanbul and Atelier Luma in Arles, the exhibition will meet the visitors in Belgium from 28 June to 29 September 2019.

With the Bauhaus celebrating its centenary this year, A School of Schools explores how design is learning and learning is design. Comprising a selection of more than 100 projects from the 4th Istanbul Design Biennial, the exhibition is curated by Jan Boelen, artistic director of Z33 – House for Contemporary Art. Commenting on the exhibition, Boelen says: “It would seem that design itself is changing, no longer simply about consumable products. The projects on display show snapshots in ongoing research into how we can renegotiate knowledge and power.”

A creative hub in Genk, C-mine is a site that has been converted from its original use for mineral extraction in the 20th century, into a location for the incubation of creative industries in the 21st century. The installation, which was designed by Aslı Çiçek using the exhibition system by Lukas Wegwerth, is interspersed throughout the C-mine building.

A School of Schools’ Belgium edition is an initiative of lstanbul Foundation for Culture and Arts (İKSV) and Z33 – House for Contemporary Art, in collaboration with C-mine Genk. The exhibition is supported by the Turkish Embassy in Brussels and Turkish Airlines.

The 4th Istanbul Design Biennial

The 4th Istanbul Design Biennial was held between 22 September and 4 November 2018 and brought together more than 200 interdisciplinary practitioners from 21 countries in 6 venues. Curated by Jan Boelen with Nadine Botha and Vera Sacchetti under the title A School of Schools, the biennial was visited by more than 200.000 people in 6 weeks. The biennial projects explored the multiple dimensions of design as learning in six schools: Unmaking School, Currents School, Scales School, Earth School, Time School, and Digestion School.

The 4th Istanbul Design Biennial presented an ambitious programme of exhibitions, projects and events, which spanned the city of Istanbul. At the heart of the biennial was an ambition to create a space for learning in which established norms and conventions could be questioned.
