“The Financing of International Contemporary Art Biennials,” the third report written as part of İKSV’s cultural policy studies, is published in Turkish and English. The report discusses the financing models of eight biennials, including the Istanbul Biennial, which guide the development of contemporary art around the globe.

The study focuses on how these different actors in various countries give shape and support to cultural life with a discussion of the financing of these international biennials. The findings and results of the report are also published in the book “Shifting Gravity” edited by Ute Meta Bauer and Hou Hanru and published by the Biennial Foundation.
