The contemporary art scene in Turkey has flourished some- what in recent years, due mainly to the international biennials. The opportunity to feel the wavelength of artists from all over the world has lead, it seems, to an inner questioning of where Turkish contemporary art stands - or could stand - in a wider, global perspective. According to Ahu Antmen, Turkish artists are intrinsically post- modern, and the schizophrenia of this neither/nor situation, this dual existence in a space both modern and traditional, so old but so open to the new, bears a forest of inspiration.
