Saturday 24 April 2021, from 12 pm (+3 GMT) on. 

The 5th Istanbul Design Biennial – Empathy Revisited: Designs for more than one – was launched in October 2020 with many of its projects continuing to live post-2021. Not quite a finissage! is a day-long event, which marks a closure while opening new works to the public at the same time. It presents projects by an international line-up of designers, architects and artists, whose work adopts sensitive, diplomatic, sometimes therapeutic functions, with the aim of connecting us with one another but also with the world around us. Seeking to define a new role for design based on empathy, this event interrogates how we relate emotionally with other species and bodies – biological, geological, mineral, mechanic.

Comprising talks, walks, performances and screenings, it puts forward 

ideas and projects that encourage us to rethink practices of care and civility at this critical moment in time, and to collectively build new systems and  structures for reconnecting.

Not quite a finissage! will be shared through İKSV’s YouTube channel 

as well as the websites of the Design Museum and Het Nieuwe Instituut.
