Contemporary Istanbul 2010

The opening of the Contemporary Istanbul 2010 art fair was incredibly crowded, too crowded in fact to shoot any video. So VernissageTV came back at the next day to take a look at the fair and talk with some art dealers and gallerists. In the video above, which is an excerpt, Bettina Krogemann speaks with the Director of Gallery X-ist (Istanbul), Kerimcan Güleryüz, who talks about his impressions of the fair and one of his favorite pieces he presents at the fair. The full-length video (after the jump) features interviews with Anemone Vostell, Managing Director of the Galleries Association of Berlin (LVBG); Frank Pages of Galerie Frank Pages, Baden-Baden (Germany); Boris Brockstedt of Galerie Brockstedt, Berlin; and Anna von Bodungen of Berlin Art Projects, Berlin.
