On June 23rd 2017 we came together in a small circle for our 60th anniversary.
IGBK board members and delegates together with companions, artists and members of partner organisations attended a talk by the Turkish curator Necmi Sönmez in the Projektraum Deutscher Künstlerbund.
Sönmez’ talk, entitled »Sollen alle türkischen Künstler*innen auswandern?«, took a brief view at the state of the art scene in Turkey since the constitutional referendum in 2017.
The talk and reunion was at the same time an opening event to our symposium »Fragile Affinities - (Re)strengthening international artistic collaboration«, taking place November 23rd and 24th, 2017 in cooperation with Akademie der Künste at Hanseatenweg in Berlin.
