The Istanbul Foundation for Culture of arts has started accepting project submissions to the Istanbul Design Biennial, the first of which is being held this year.
Project submissions to the biennial, whose theme has been set as “Imperfection,” will continue through June 2. Emre Arolat and Joseph Grima, the curators of the biennial, are interpreting the theme of “imperfection” with two different approaches. Arolat and Grima will prepare a selection through which they will respectively judge selections with the themes “Musibet” (“calamity”) and “Adhocracy.” Projects in all areas of design are welcome, from architecture to graphic design, fashion to urban and regional planning, and industrial design to photography.
The schedule of the Istanbul Design Biennial started with the “Why Design?” event held February at the Istanbul Modern and preliminary events held in March, after which it will continue with the “Why Biennial?” round-table discussion on May 26, 2012.
