Dear Henk, I haven't heard of this event before, but at first sight, 9
days seems pretty short for a contemporary art biennial, plus, I can't
locate any information about their conceptual framework - two facts which
contradict with my understanding of the concept.
Ours will last for almost 2 months (as usual):
Also, AFAIK, nobody pays anything to the biennial committee / organizers
for exhibition space in Istanbul.
This looks more like a "commercial art fair" (could that be an oxymoron?)
than it looks like a contemporary art biennial.
