İKSV organises special one-off events over the course of a year besides the festivals and biennials.

The first special event organised by the foundation was in 1992, featuring Bryan Adams in the first stadium concert organised in Istanbul. Special events continued with large-scale concerts by Sting and Scorpions, and the exhibition curated by René Block with the title of “Fluxus in Germany: 1962-1994”, in the 90’s. Expanding its special events in the following 2000’s, the foundation continues to present major events outside the festival or biennial seasons.
