This is Istanbuls first museum dedicated to contemporary art. It is spread over 86,000 square foot and has exhibition halls, photography gallery, cinema hall, video art area and new media art area. Stairway to Hell" by Monica Bonvicini in 2003 is one of the main attractions. Along with it, the museum also boasts work by Fahrelnissa Zeid and Seker Ahmet Pasa.
Istanbul was lacking a modern art museum since years. Istanbul Modern is far beyond than a classical museum; you only visit once and usually get bored in the middle of your tour. Istanbul Modern has permanent collection exhibitions, photo galleries, libraries, theaters, shops and a restaurant with an excellent view of Old Istanbul including Topkapi Palace and Hagia Sophia.
The building used to be a warehouse belonging to Turkish Maritime. The idea to restore the building and change to a modern art museum is very creative and challenging.
I would recommend to everybody to schedule at least a half day visit to Istanbul Modern including a coffee break at the restaurant as well.
