Suna and İnan Kıraç Foundation Pera Museum presents the Kütahya Ceramics and Museology Seminar for undergraduate and graduate students, featuring selections from the museum’s Kütahya Tiles and Ceramics Collection. Bringing together museology, art history, and cultural history, this interdisciplinary seminar delves into the ceramics produced in Kütahya, the most significant hub of ceramic production after Iznik during the Ottoman era. The goal of the seminar is to offer a fresh perspective on Kütahya ceramics to young researchers.
The full-day program consists of the seminar and workshop sessions, and the first segment focuses on Kütahya ceramics. This segment explores the artistic evolution of Kütahya ceramics from the 18th century to today, as well as their significance within the Ottoman culture. The second segment of the program involves practical sessions. Participants look into a selection of ceramics through case studies and workshops as part of basic museology training. They learn more about the documentation, conservation, and collection of works of art by museums, management of collections, exhibitions, and museum learning workshops in the context of Kütahya ceramics.
The Kütahya Ceramics and Museology Seminar will be held physically at the Istanbul Research Institute. Program language is Turkish. Attendance to the program is free; however, students traveling from outside the city must cover their own accommodation and transportation expenses.
Discovered in Ethiopia as the “magic fruit,” and reaching the land of the Ottomans through Yemen in the 15th century, coffee soon assumed its place as a prestigious beverage in the palace and wealthy households.

Inspired by the exhibition And Now the Good News, which focusing on the relationship between mass media and art, we prepared horoscope readings based on the chapters of the exhibition. Using the popular astrological language inspired by the effects of the movements of celestial bodies on people, these readings with references to the works in the exhibition make fictional future predictions inspired by the horoscope columns that we read in the newspapers with the desire to receive good news about our day.
