The Curator of 3rd Periferic Biennial
Anders Kreuger will talk at Platform

2nd of December '02, Monday at 7pm.

Platform Garanti Contemporary Art Center will host a talk by Swedish curator Anders Kreuger on Monday 2nd December '02.

Kreuger will talk about his concept for the exhibition, "Prophetic Corners" defined as "an exhibition about the future", which will take place in the 3rd Periferic Biennial.
The talk will be illustrated by visuals and will begin at 7pm.

Inspired by a quote of Walter Benjamin, the 3rd Periferic Biennial brings together twenty artists from a number of different contexts. The exhibition is to be held in Iasi in Northeastern Romania from May-June 2003. The venues include a disused Turkish bath and the Palace of Culture, a former court of law that now houses four museums.

Kreuger is one of the most important freelance curators of North European and Baltic countries. He is also the founder of one of the most prestigious institutions in the art world, NIFCA (Nordic Institute for Contemporary Art).

Writer and art critic Esra Aliçavuşoğlu, and artists Nadi Güler and Özge Açıkkol participated in the 2nd Periferic Biennial in 2001 with the support of Platform Garanti Contemporary Art Center.
