A very hot Istanbul day and the preview of the 14th Istanbul Biennial hits the city. With viewers and press from all over the country, we suddenly feel like a minority speaking English whilst touring the venues. Here are some artworks from a few of the venues we managed to get around. Stay tuned for more, remember the biennial runs another 2 months and has more than 30 venues around Istanbul.
