November 09, 2012 15.00
The contemporary Turkish art scene has developed dynamically and spectacularly in recent years, with the opening of new galleries and privately founded museums, the prospering of private and corporate collections, and the establishment of art fairs. How can we explain this art boom? What are the most important factors, and who are the key figures in this process? What are the main characteristics of contemporary Turkish art, and how influential is traditional Ottoman culture, politics or religion? What does the scene look like from an investor’s viewpoint?
