Borusan Contemporary is a space for art and a multi-platform program of exhibitions, events, educational initiatives, new commissions and site specific installations rooted in the Borusan Contemporary Art Collection. These activities are defined by their specific focus on media arts broadly defined, ie artists who work with time, light, technology, video, software and beyond. Most of the program takes place at the Perili Köşk Istanbul, and co-exists with the offices of Borusan Holding, in essence creating a unique atmosphere in an office paradigm. The entire building including the galleries, office space, café, Borusan ArtStore and outdoor terraces with breathtaking views of the Bosphorus are open to the public on the weekends.

This place is a must see when you visit Istanbul. Great pieces of art scattered around the actual offices. Make sure you take advantage of the terrace cafe with a killer view.

Borusan Contemporary (Perili kosk) has a great story. It is formally an headquarter of Borusan holding with very impressive modern art collection. Moreover, it can be the coolest building of Istanbul with breathtaking bosphorous view. Tip: Have a coffee break at museum's cafe.
