The Arter Gallery in Istanbul and Neues Museum Nürnberg have collaborated for a joint exhibition featuring three artists’ work centering on the theme of silence

Arter Gallery Istanbul and Neues Museum Nürnberg have collaborated for the exhibition titled “Zamanın Kıyısında” (On the Edge of Time), which is organized with a selection from the Contemporary Art Collection of the Vehbi Koç Foundation. Curated by professor Thomas Heyden, the exhibition features the works of Bilge Friedlaender, Ahmet Doğu İpek and Füsun Onur. While Heyden prepares the exhibition in the theme of silence that he sees as the common point in the works of this trio, the exhibition is being presented with the concept of being on the edge of time, inspired from philosopher Michel Foucault and determines the exhibition’s poetic scope, separating the past and present. The exhibition, which was opened on March 2 at Neues Museum Nürnberg, will continue until June 10 2018
