The 15th Istanbul Biennial collaborates with Pinakothek der Moderne in Munich to bring 12 international artists together to question the notion of home and neighbourhood between 14 December 2017 and 29 April 2018. Entitled 'a good neighbour_on the move', the exhibition is curated by Elmgreen & Dragset, curators of the 15th Istanbul Biennial and Bernhart Schwenk, head of contemporary art at the Pinakothek der Moderne.
A continuation of the 15th Istanbul Biennial entitled 'a good neighbour', the exhibition 'a good neighbour_on the move' at the Pinakothek der Moderne can be seen as a dialogue with this year's biennial illustrating how a globalised world is also changing the self-understanding of public art institutions and their exhibitions.
The exhibition features 10 artists from the 15th Istanbul Biennial, which was held between 16 September and 12 November 2017, as well as CANAN, an established contemporary artist from Turkey and Vlassis Caniaris, considered to be one of the most renowned and influential Greek artists of his generation. Artworks by these 12 artists from across the world reflect their experiences of the consequences of global conflicts, social control, perspectives on gender roles and forms of coexistence.
