Borusan Contemporary

The aim of Borusan Contemporary in Istanbul is to introduce the Borusan Contemporary Art Collection to a wider audience, and to generate interest in modern art within Turkey overall. Another purpose of the museum is to establish and support educational programs and academic discussions for a variety of age groups.

Situated in a castle-esque red brick mansion (Perili Köşk) built in 1911 and overlooking the suspension bridge that links Europe and Asia, Borusan Contemporary rather fittingly places Turkish art in a wider international context, drawing inspiration from across the globe. The building also houses the headquarters of Borusan Holding, a café, the Borusan Art Store, plus outdoor terraces with views of the Bosphorus.

The works of art at Borusan Contemporary include a varied selection from the Borusan Contemporary Art Collection, as well as individual artist and group exhibitions curated by nationally and internationally acclaimed curators.
