In the upcoming 2nd Istanbul Design Biennial, "The Future Is Not What It Used To Be" questions the role of design, its relationship to society, and how it can potentially bring change.
Curated by Zoë Ryan and spanning all five floors of the Galata Greek Primary School from November 1-December 14, the biennial will showcase a designers' exhibition of over 50 projects that ask who defines the future and how it is defined. But the crucial aspect it explores is whose future could be affected.
On top of that, a variety of Q&A sessions, panels, film screenings, and academic workshops will take place throughout the week.

"In an area of approximately 2,300 square metres at the Galata Greek Primary School, the exhibition will feature more than 50 projects by designers working in Australia, China, France, Japan, Mexico, the Netherlands, Turkey and the United States."
"The projects in the exhibition question the manifesto as a platform for situating ideas and pointing to new directions. They propose alternative manifestos in the form of household objects, fashion accessories, food, menus, maps, buildings, visual languages, systems, and services.
Arranged in five departments — Broadcast, Personal, Resource, Norms and Standards, and Civic Relations — the projects in the biennial deal with a broad array of concerns and present a surprising set of multiple possible futures."
"In addition to the exhibition, the biennial will host different events for design enthusiasts daily for six weeks. Within the scope of the biennial, the Kontraakt team's broadcast programming will be held on Tuesdays, Q&A's and panels on Wednesdays, film screenings on Thursdays, and Academy Programme workshops on Fridays."
