ISTANBUL: PASSION, JOY, FURY

The passion for creativity
The joy that emerges from achieving objectivesThe fury of the city 

We are continuing our exploration of the cultural milieu of the Mediterranean basin and the relations between the Middle East and Europe. Following the exhibition Unedited History on contemporary Iranian art, MAXXI has reached Istanbul.

An exploration through major works
and new artistic production
with in-depth examinations and first-hand testimony.

Istanbul: Passion, Joy, Fury tackles the dynamics, the changes and the cultural demands of contemporary Turkey, a bridge between the western and eastern worlds.
Starting out with the recent protests at Gezi Park, the exhibition examines five major themes: urban transformations; political conflicts and resistance; innovative models of production; geopolitical urgencies; hope.
