Why is it that something that seems so close, like the dream of getting away at a long weekend, seems so strange? Istanbul, further than its stones and the weight of its history, of the complexity of its yearning for modernization and the increase of an Islam which is never univocal, possesses a living culture that is contemporary, plural and pronounced social character.
The Huarte Centre, through "While all this is happening", which will be held from the 11 to 16 of November, proposes to establish a complex dialogue through art and creativity. The most innovating photography, video, performance, music, cinema, literature and design will give life to the first great Conference of Contemporary Turkish Culture.
A process that can open a new perspective for the public and artists in Istanbul and Navarra, which, as Beral Madra, organizer of the Conference, declares, "they can understand the others' aspirations and ways of creating art, find similarities and differences". Meet, share, create and feel, from one shore to the other.
