'House of Wisdom' explores the political significance of books, libraries and archives, specifically in relation to the increasing levels of censorship on information and the current socio-political situation in and around Turkey. Drawing on the power of libraries as centers of research, learning, and sharing, the curators decided to build their own library/archive – a House of Wisdom - for which they invited 34 artists to contribute. What could be the outcome of collectively rethinking the archive?

During the opening there will be a performance by Istanbul Queer Art Collective.
