 Atatürk Cultural Centre is a dark 70´s style building with endless stairs and corridors,steel ceilings and abandoned seating lounges. Rather few art works are exhibited in the building, amongst the artists, Vahran Aghasyan, photos of a flooded city. The most interesting work is Xu Zhen´s work
"8848-1.86", an installation piece that documents the artist chopping
of the last1.86 meter ice cap of Mount Everest.

It symbolizes the Tugra, the signature of one of the Ottoman Sultans. In my humble opinion the artistic background suppose to give a modern more or less abstract  effect.
