This edition of Art Barter was befittingly located at 5533 in the Istanbul Textile Traders’ Market (IMC).
5533 turned a former commercial environment into a ‘contact zone’ where visitors from different backgrounds, professions, and communities interact with IMC inhabitants to experience various artistic forms in a non-exclusive and non-elitist atmosphere. As an independent space for research and discussion, 5533 hosts video screenings, performances and contemporary art exhibitions.

Art Barter was supported by STEP, which stands for ‘Supporting Travel for Engaged Partnerships’. STEP travel grants support creative and critical cultural workers travelling across Europe and its neighbours, to help foster a society with greater solidarity, equality and a stronger sense of social justice. The programme is initiated and managed by ECF.
