About Kurye Video Organization

Kurye Video Organization, with its festival and events, is currently the most important video festival and archive of Istanbul’s contemporary art scene and the first independent video organization in Turkey. With the concept of the “Courier”, we took the side of the image, which is now more than ever accessible and circulating, against the system of galleries and curatorial practices that separate and define those who chose and those who are chosen. The aim here is to exhibit the contributed videos in different venues both in Istanbul and elsewhere without subjecting them to a selection process; thus becoming a festival-on-the-move and assisting the circulation of the videos and their accessibility to a wide public.

“Courier” group welcomes any new videos sent throughout the period of circulation. Every video will become a part of the newly developing independent video platform’s archive and be exhibited in various venues both national and international events days to come.

Kurye Video Organization operates as an archive and this archive currently consists of 450 videos by 170 artists and the numbers are increasing by the day. In this regard, the organization boasts of having one of the biggest video archives in Turkey and the region and of being the largest art initiative in terms of the number of affiliated artist in Turkey.
