Global and Local had been topics for years, I thought the Istanbul Biennial is specialized on that...
Why to create a tension, wich is obviously common all over around and in us for a long time ? We artists want no mainstream, but visions"With a budget of about $3 million from the German Federal Cultural Foundation and nearly two years to prepare..."Wow,

- Artists painting their Gmail-Inboxes on huge canvases
- Selling frozen or endless repeating stock monitors as "top emerging art products"
