Banu Cennetoğlu (b. 1970, Ankara, Turkey) lives and works in Istanbul. Cennetoğlu explores the political, social and cultural dimension of the production, representation and distribution of knowledge and asks how it feeds into a society’s collective thought and becomes part of its ideology. In 2006 she initiated BAS, a project space in Istanbul focusing on collection and production of artists’ books and printed matter. In 2016 she was a guest at the DAAD Artists-in-Berlin Program.

Recent exhibitions include REDCAT, Los Angeles, USA (2017); documenta 14, Athens, Greece & Kassel, Germany (2017); Fondazione Nicola Trussardi, Milan, Italy (2017); 10th Gwangju Biennale, South Korea (2014); Manifesta 8, Murcia, Spain (2010); 53rd Venice Biennale, Italy (2009); 3rd Berlin Biennale, Germany (2008); 1st Athens Biennale, Greece (2007); and 10th Istanbul Biennial, Istanbul (2007).
