Ali Yass, Destination II, 2017

'House of Wisdom' explores the political significance of books, libraries and archives, specifically in relation to the increasing levels of censorship on information and the current socio-political situation in and around Turkey. Drawing on the power of libraries as centers of research, learning, and sharing, the curators decided to build their own library/archive – a House of Wisdom - for which they invited 34 artists to contribute. What could be the outcome of collectively rethinking the archive?

During the opening there will be a performance by Istanbul Queer Art Collective.
