- What’s On
Mardin’s fourth biennial, curated by Fırat Arapoğlu, Nazlı Gürlek and Derya Yücel, kicks off for the month of May with the theme ‘Beyond the Word’. The event takes full advantage of the stunning and distinctive architecture in Mardin, transforming the historical sites of the city into platforms for art. Various sites, including the German Headquarters, the Hammam, the Mardin Museum Gallery, the Bazaar Shops and the Carpenters’ Kahvesi will be utilised. The biennial aims to explore different forms of expression create by the body and places, and the way they interact in a physical way, beyond words.
In addition to the displayed art, there will be a programme of talks and workshops.
