Open Call for Pavilion of Turkey, 18th International Architecture Exhibition of la Biennale di Venezia

The 18th edition of the International Architecture Exhibition of la Biennale di Venezia, one of the world’s leading architectural events, will be held between 20 May and 26 November 2023, next year. The title of the 18th International Architecture Exhibition, curated by Lesley Lokko, is the “Laboratory of the Future”.

The coordinator of the Pavilion of Turkey, the Istanbul Foundation for Culture and Arts (İKSV), is making an open call to determine the project to be exhibited in the pavilion. The Pavilion of Turkey at the International Architecture Exhibition of la Biennale di Venezia is realised with the contributions of the Ministry of Culture and Tourism and under the auspices of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Turkey, and co-sponsored by Schüco Turkey and VitrA.

The International Architecture Exhibition of la Biennale di Venezia is a major platform that presents conceptual productions and approaches in architecture. A part of the biennial’s “National Participations”, the Pavilion of Turkey will seek out, for the first round of evaluations, proposals with conceptual frameworks that are capable of discussing the contemporary discourses in the field of architecture; explore the concepts on or beyond architecture through alternative interdisciplinary practices, and have the potential to challenge conventional narratives. In addition to having strong visual narration, it is also important that the project’s theme is clear and accessible. This call is for curators, architects, artists, historians, designers, theorists, critics, or anyone working in neighbouring fields. Applications by İKSV employees, first-degree relatives of the members of the Selection Committee, or business partners/their employees will not be considered for evaluation. Applications can be made individually or as a team, or through international collaborations that will involve at least one participant from Turkey. For applications made as a team, a team leader must be determined.

The Selection Committee, which will determine the project to be included in the Turkish Pavilion exhibition with a two-stage open call method, will be supported by Aslı Çiçek, Neyran Turan, Prof. Dr. It consists of Ayşen Savaş, Han Tümertekin and Ertuğ Uçar.

Applications must be completed by 18:00 on Monday, October 3, 2022.
