Organised by the Istanbul Foundation for Culture and Arts (İKSV) and sponsored by Koç Holding, the 15th Istanbul Biennialtake place between 16 September and 12 November 2017.

The 15th Istanbul Biennial curators, Elmgreen & Dragset, spoke about some of the themes that can be associated with the title and said that the biennial's format will bear traces of being curated by artists. They explained, "'a good neighbour' will deal with multiple notions of home and neighbourhoods, exploring how living modes in our private spheres have changed throughout the past decades. Home is approached as an indicator of diverse identities and a vehicle for self-expression, and neighbourhood as a micro-universe exemplifying some of the challenges we face in terms of co-existence today."
