7-12 Year-Olds 15th Istanbul Biennial Education Program

Inspired by the 15th Istanbul Biennial “a good neighbour”, the program aims to enhance children’s awareness of their environment. Taking the question “Who is your neighbor?” as starting point, the program begins with the solar system and explores neighboring planets, neighboring geographies, neighboring lives in nature, and finally our next-door neighbors. The children question how well they know the “neighbors” with whom they share their habitat. As they describe the similarities and differences between themselves and their neighbors, they start seeing, perhaps for the first time, the notion of “neighbor” as one of the most important components of knowing oneself.

During the exhibition tour, children evaluate how the artists have dealt with the concept of “neighbor” in their works. After the tour, they engage in an art game designed specifically for them, and create stories and narrative pictures. This story takes shape in a way that brings together different times and people. The children create illustrated stories on pictures of windows that open onto different lives of which they imagine the neighborhood relationships.
