Ludovic Bernhardt An incisive point of view on the cultural life in Middle East. Deniz Agden, a young Turkish artist, doesn’t give news anymore for three days. Mohamed, French artist based in Istanbul, is intrigued by the mysterious disappearance. Trying to understand why, he takes us on a journey rich in details to the Istanbul’s art world and cultural life. Through art galleries, parties, bars, and Art Fairs in Dubai and Istanbul, the alter ego of Ludovic Bernhardt finds himself immersed in the political, economic and religious contemporary Turkish society. A keen observer of this “society of the spectacle”, he provides an overview of issues facing the globalized youth in Istanbul and brings a poignant look into the art system.
