Istanbul Modern
Anthony Cragg

Forced to leave its original location on the shores of Karaköy due to ongoing construction work in the area, Istanbul's foremost modern arts museum moved earlier this year to a smaller, temporary location in the Beyoğlu/Pera area. Founded in 2004 as Turkey’s first museum of modern and contemporary art, Istanbul Modern continues to host exhibitions as well as its permanent collection and eventually plans on moving back to Karaköy once its facility there is rebuilt. The in-house cinema regularly screens independent films programmed around ongoing exhibitions, contemporary directors and stand-alone events.
