For International Museum Week, Pera Museum is organising a free exhibition tour for a limited number of participants with the curators Serdar Darendeliler and Refik Akyüz for the exhibition Istanbuls Today, which offers a comprehensive look into contemporary visual narratives from various Istanbuls that are shaped and experienced concurrently with the hope of creating a layered and innovative view of Istanbul's present.
The photography exhibition, including thematic urban landscapes, provides a viewing space for the latest unexhibited works of 11 photographers who live in Istanbul with varying relations with the city and who create art in their own unique styles.
The free guided tour is in Turkish. Museum entrance tickets must be purchased separately. Our quota is limited. To join the tour, you can make a reservation via firstname.lastname@example.org e-mail address.

Coffee was served with much splendor at the harems of the Ottoman palace and mansions. First, sweets (usually jam) was served on silverware, followed by coffee serving. The coffee jug would be placed in a sitil (brazier), which had three chains on its sides for carrying, had cinders in the middle, and was made of tombac, silver or brass. The sitil had a satin or silk cover embroidered with silver thread, tinsel, sequin or even pearls and diamonds.
The wind blows, rubbing against my legs made of layers of metal and wires, swaying the leaves of grass that have shot up from the cracks in the tarmac, and going off to the windows that look like the eyes of dead children in the wrecked buildings that seem to be everywhere as far as the eye can see.
