"In Turkey, everybody is a member of Istanbul—of their culture—and want to have a say in the future of it. The biennial brings in a more heightened discussion."
—Shahzia Sikander

The latest Artist to Artist film features Shahzia Sikander at the 13th Istanbul Biennial. The artists she speaks with—Basim Magdy, Hito Steyerl, Rietveld Landscape, Diego Bianchi, and Gülsün Karamustafa—address not only the concepts that underlie their work, but also the public protests in Gezi Park and Taksim Square that began three months before the Biennial opened and their effects on the Biennial.
