Istanbul. Passion, Joy, Fury

Social transformations, political tension, conflicts and new community dynamics have made it the symbol of global change: this is Istanbul, to which MAXXI is dedicating Istanbul. Passion, Joy, Fury, an exhibition curated by Hou Hanru, Ceren Erdem, Elena Motisi and Donatella Saroli.
The exhibition – resulted from a long-term research inspired by conversations with the local creative community of Istanbul – consists of six sections and presents the work of 45 artists, architects and intellectuals through major works, new artistic projects and audio-visual testimony in multiplicity of idioms and expressions. Starting out with reflections on key issues spotlighted in the Gezi Park protests in 2013, the exhibition, thriving from examinations of the current mutations of the urban, cultural and social reality in Istanbul and their impacts on creative practices, tackles existential questions that apply to all of us: Are we ready for change? Is it right to fight? Is it really necessary to work so hard? Is it possible for people to live together in peace? And above all, can we still hope for a better tomorrow? Artists, architects and intellectuals have replied to all of these questions through their work, developing a solid critical commitment, of which the exhibition presents an overview, mapping the various experiences that have evolved in the city and thanks to the city: artistic, architectural, cinematic and critical projects.
Istanbul. Passion, Joy, Fury is the second stage in a project devoted to the cultural realities of the Mediterranean and the relationship between the Middle East and Europe initiated in 2014 with the exhibition of contemporary Iranian art and which is due to continue in 2017 with a project devoted to Beirut.
