Istanbul Modern Museum

Enjoying a unique location, the museum opened in 2004 and stands for contemporary art.

Located at the pier of Karaköy, in a former maritime warehouse of 1958, it was a powerful example of the Europeanization of the country. It is the city’s first private museum and has a rich collection of contemporary art and Turkish modern art. In temporary exhibitions, it presents the contemporary art of international standing and, at the same time, raises the profile of Turkish artists around the world, whose works are already exhibited in European museums, galleries and art fairs.
In addition to numerous video installations, it offers exhibition spaces for contemporary collage, painting and patchwork. There is also a movie room, a library and a modern café. The tour of the museum shop offers a generous selection of handcrafted accessories and gift items, as well as fascinating books on art and photography.

Until the original building on the Bosphorus has been rebuilt, the museum will continue to offer its visitors a good overview of the current art scene in Turkey and those of the last decades at its temporary location in Beyoğlu.
