Stage of Plastic Dreams
A Question of Taste Opening Party

Online Party

March 12, 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.

The Opening Party for A Question of Taste exhibition on March 12 will host a set by iz (Elif Koçak) with tunes bordering on electronic music, enriched by subgenera and embellished with experimental selections; as well as by a performance by AVgen (Lal Avgen) created with shapes and colors, bringing together a visual, sound-sensitive world based on codes and videos. Then Çiçek Çocuk and Kübra Uzun will take the stage to perform “Our Crystal Spectacles”, an electronic blend of cult Broadway classics with queer narratives of the past and Çiçek Çocuk’s own songs.

20:00 Digital door opening

Mosques in the 18th and 19th Century Paintings

In the works of western painters, we encounter mosques as the primary architectural elements that reflect the identity of the city of Istanbul. Often we can recognize the depicted landscape as Istanbul simply from the mosques.

History of a Khanjar

History of a Khanjar

Henryk Weyssenhoff, author of landscapes, prints, and illustrations, devoted much of his creative energies to realistic vistas of Belorussia, Lithuania, and Samogitia. A descendant of an ancient noble family which moved east to the newly Polonised Inflanty in the 17th century, the young Henryk was raised to cherish Polish national traditions.
