Suna and İnan Kıraç Foundation Pera Museum presents the Late Antique and Byzantine Weights and Measures Seminar for undergraduate and graduate students, featuring selections from the museum’s Anatolian Weights and Measures Collection. The seminar seeks to provide young researchers engaged in the study of Late Antique and Byzantine economy, trade, and culture with a novel approach to the prevalent commerce and trade practices of the era.
The intensive full-day program consists of the seminar and workshop sessions. The first segment of the program focuses on theoretical knowledge pertaining to Late Antique and Byzantine weights and measures. The second segment involves in-depth workshop sessions examining common tools found in the marketplaces of the era, as featured in the museum collection.
The Late Antique and Byzantine Weights and Measures Seminar will be held physically at the Istanbul Research Institute. The program language is Turkish. Attendance to the program is free; however, students travelling from outside the city must cover their own accommodation and transportation expenses.
As the measurement of discovery became the substance of myths, weighing and measuring, beyond being mere physical actions, became an important means of self-expression to those captivated by the universe and what lay beyond the boundaries of knowledge.

The exhibition “Look At Me! Portraits and Other Fictions from the ”la Caixa” Contemporary Art Collection” examined portraiture, one of the oldest artistic genres, through a significant number of works of our times. Paintings, photographs, sculptures and videos shaped a labyrinth of gazes that invite spectators to reflect themselves in the social mirror of portraits.
