In conjunction with the exhibition Aurora: Contemporary Nordic Glass Art, Asa Jungnelius, a remarkable name from Sweden’s young generation of artists, will be in conversation with art critic Ahu Antmen. The conversation will focus on Nordic countries’ well-established contemporary glass art tradition and how it has evolved, alongside an examination of Asa Jungnelius’ work, which poses questions on identity, gender and consumer society.
The event will be held in English and will be simultaneously translated into Turkish. Free of admissions.
The glass artists hailing from Northern European countries, presented us here in İstanbul with contemporary interpretations of glass, a material inherited from past cultures.

Nam June Paik was video art’s pioneer (1932 –2006). It is interesting that while Warhol and Nameth were experimenting with psychedelic happenings that combined rock, film and performance, the video art pioneers Nam June Paik, Stephen Beck, Eric Siegel and Steina Vasulka were researching in a similar direction.
Pera Museum, in collaboration with Istanbul Foundation for Culture and Arts (İKSV), is one of the main venues for this year’s 15th Istanbul Biennial from 16 September to 12 November 2017. Through the biennial, we will be sharing detailed information about the artists and the artworks.
I remembered a game as I was waiting in the passenger lounge for the ferry to arrive just a few minutes ago. A game we used to play at home when I was young, in my country that is very far away from here, a relic from the distant past; I don’t even remember how we used to play it. The kind of game that makes me feel a thousand times lonelier than I already am among the crowd waiting to get on the ferry.
