Co-curators of the 3rd Istanbul Design Biennial Beatriz Colomina and Mark Wigley invited industrial and graphic designers, architectures, artists, film produces, associations, non-governmental organisations from around the world to submit 2 minute videos that address the theme “ARE WE HUMAN?” posed by the biennial.

An international and interdisciplinary jury consisting of curators Beatriz Colomina and Mark Wigley, Director of Istanbul Film Festival Kerem Ayan, Director of the Storefront for Art and Architecture Eva Franch i Gilabert, artist and film producer Amie Siegel and curator Iván López Munuera evaluated more than 200 videos from 68 cities in 36 countries and selected 5 videos to be highlighted in the biennial exhibition and catalogue. Other 141 submitted videos fulfilling the requirements of the Open Call will be presented in a dedicated section within the exhibition itself and will be online on the biennial website by 22 October 2016.
