Istanbul show explores human relationship with design

The 3rd Istanbul Design Biennial, which will open on the 22nd October 2016 and last for four weeks, will ask the fundamental question: Are We Human?

It will do so by exploring the intimate relationship between the concepts of “design” and “humanity.”

Five venues—the Galata Greek Primary School, Studio-X Istanbul and Depo in Karaköy, Alt in Bomonti, and the Istanbul Archaeological Museums in Sultanahmet—will house more than 70 projects by designers, architects, artists, historians, archaeologists and scientists from 13 countries.

In order to “rethink design from the very beginning of humanity,” the Biennial will be organised into four overlapping projects: Designing the Body, Designing the Planet, Designing Life, and Designing Time.
