Call for Applications for the 11th International İstanbul Biennial 2009
Deadline : January 30th, 2009

The 11th International Istanbul Biennial will take place between 12
September-8 November 2009 and takes its title, "What Keeps Mankind
Alive?" from the closing song of the second act of Bertolt Brecht's
The Threepenny Opera, written 80 years ago.

According to WHW, the question "What Keeps Mankind Alive?" seems to be
more urgent and topical than when it was first posed by Brecht in
1928. The conceptual framework of the 11th International Istanbul
Biennial "What Keeps Mankind Alive?" will serve as a trigger, as well
as a certain script for the exhibition, allowing us and the artists to
pose questions of economic and social urgency today.

The artists to participate in the 11th International İstanbul Biennial
will be determined by What, How & for Whom / WHW, the curators of the
exhibition. WHW continues to carry out research both in Turkey and
abroad with this objective.
Each applicant is supposed to send the fulfilled Project Proposal
Submission Form [pdf]-

maximum of three project proposals relating to the exhibition's
concept, which is announced with the title 'What Keeps Mankind
