Istanbul Kadıköy's Yeldeğirmeni Neighbourhood is known to be the district where the appartments rose for the first time. The appartment number 52 here was built for the German engineers during the construction of Haydarpaşa Station.

The exhibition "Appartment" brings together 23 contemporary artists who use different techniques and materials for their works.

Curators of the exhibition, Lara Lakay and Tuba Kocakaya, took off from the meaning of the Latin meaning of appartment that is "to spare, to divide to pieces, feelings". With their words, this exhibition:

It aims not only to unite the contemporary and decomposed art scene but also to terminate the long term seperation of the city heroes as the artists, art lovers and curios people.

Apartment No: 52 will be restored after the exhibition and will be hosting exhibitions, workshops and guest artists.

Artists who have works in the exhibition: Ali Kanal, Z.Ayşe Hatipoğlu, Bedia Ekiz, Cansu Yıldıran, Cins, Dila Yumurtacı, Dinçer İşgel, Eşref Yıldırım, Gaye Su Akyol, Gökhan Deniz, Gökhan Deneç, Gökhun Baltacı, Güler Güçlü, Hakan Gürsoytrak, İris Ergül, Kıvılcım Güngörün, Leman Sevda Darıcıoğlu, Meltem Sarıkaya, Mustafa Horasan, Özgür Can Taşcı, Sevim Kaya, Tayfun Gülnar ve Zeynep Özkanca.
