An open call has gone out for the first edition of the Istanbul Design Biennial which will be held from 13 October to 12 December 2012 by the Istanbul Foundation for Culture and Arts (IKSV).

The Istanbul Design Biennial, organised by the Istanbul Foundation for Culture and Arts for the first time, explores a wide range of fields, from urban design (environmental, urban and regional planning) to architecture, photography, industrial, graphic, fashion, textile and interaction design, and all related creative fields.

The theme of the Istanbul Design Biennial is adopted as “Imperfection” (Kusurluluk) at the suggestion of Deyan Sudjic, Director of The Design Museum in London and a member of the Biennial’s advisory board. The two curators of the biennial, Emre Arolat and Joseph Grima will present two different approaches within the framework of the biennial theme. The deadline is 2 June 2012 for project submissions to the Istanbul Design Biennial exhibitions “Musibet” (curated by Emre Arolat) and “Adhocracy” (curated by Joseph Grima). There are no disciplinary or geographic limitations to the projects that can be submitted for inclusion in the biennial.

Find out more at the official Istanbul Design Biennial.
