Future Nostalgia

Virtual Event

April 16, 2021 / 20:00

Pera Museum presents virtual event series “Stage of Plastic Dreams” in collaboration with HYPERCORTEX and with the support of the British Council. Organized in parallel to the A Question of Taste exhibition, the “Stage of Plastic Dreams” event series brings musicians and visual artists together in a virtual event space open to participants.

In the second event that will take place on April 16, the first performance of the night will bring together Debora İpekel and Ece Düzgit’s music with İpek Hamzaoğlu’s visuals. The mix which narrates an avatar’s day who travels between melodies and rhythms from around the world is presented with familiar and nostalgic cartoons. The second collaborative performance will present Deniz Erdem’s music and Selver Yıldırım’s moving image. The last set will be played by Robogeisha and present Ömer Özçelik and Ahmed Bektaş’s hypnotic visuals. DJ tenderemres will open and close the Stage of Plastic Dreams playing wide range of sounds from dub techno to minimal footwork.

The Golden Horn

When regarding the paintings of Istanbul by western painters, Golden Horn has a distinctive place and value. This body of water that separates the Topkapı Palace and the Historical Peninsula, in which monumental edifices are located, from Galata, where westerners and foreign embassies dwell, is as though an interpenetrating boundary.
