Suna and İnan Kıraç Foundation Anatolian Weights and Measures Collection is comprised of almost ten thousand objects dating from prehistory to those used in present day Anatolia. Formed by Suna and İnan Kıraç as early as the 1980s, the collection provide a rich selection of the material culture of the various civilizations lived in Anatolia. Being home to objects used for measuring weight, length, and volume in every field, from land measurement to commerce, architecture to jewellery making, shipping to pharmacy, the collection aims to look at the rich culture of the Anatolia from an historical point of view.
In 1998 Ben Jakober and Yannick Vu collaborated on an obvious remake of Marcel Duchamp’s Roue de Bicyclette, his first “readymade” object. Duchamp combined a bicycle wheel, a fork and a stool to create a machine which served no purpose, subverting accepted norms of art.
