Pera Museum’s The Time Needs Changing series of events continue with readings on the theme of “time” organized in collaboration with altZine. The event will feature a reading of select articles from four issues of altZine published in 2018 that explored the concept of time, from the voices of the authors; Hande Ortaç, Emir Çubukçu, İlay Bilgili, and Ulya Soley.

About altZine

Published online since 1998, altZine is Turkey’s first electronic literature magazine. For the past 20 years, altZine.net continued its life as an important platform with 292 authors contributing with 464 unique articles. In March 2015, altZine underwent a change in concept and content due to changing needs, and for the past three years, it has been published online in the form of a quarterly periodical. Each of the four issues of altZine Literature and Culture Magazine in a year explores the same theme, determined at the beginning of the year, from four different perspectives, and with contributions from four different groups of editors, enabling an in-depth look at the year’s theme. Through a detailed and focused analysis of one theme at a theme, altZine serves to put a brief pause to the fleeting nature of time that urges humans to consume everything at a rapid pace. Published each year on March 21, June 21, September 23 and December 21, the issues borrow the renewing and transforming power of the seasons to bring unique articles to readers.

The event will take place at Pera Café. Free admission, drop in. The reading will be in Turkish.

The Success of an Artist

Pera Museum presents an exhibition of French artist Félix Ziem, one of the most original landscape painters of the 19th century. The exhibition Wanderer on the Sea of Light presents Ziem as an artist who left his mark on 19th century painting and who is mostly known for his paintings of Istanbul and Venice, where the city and the sea are intertwined.
