Pera Museum hosted the 4th Istanbul Design Biennial, organized by Istanbul Foundation for Culture and Arts (İKSV). For the 4th Istanbul Design Biennial, organised by the Istanbul Foundation for Culture and Arts (İKSV) and sponsored by VitrA, curator Jan Boelen teamed up with Vera Sacchetti as Associate Curator and Nadine Botha as Assistant Curator.
As a space for critical reflection on design established in a historically rich context, the Istanbul Design Biennial offered the opportunity to question the very production and replication of design and its education. In 2018, the 4th Istanbul Design Biennial built on the legacy of previous editions, in order to reinvent itself and become a productive process-orientated platform for education and design to research, experiment and learn in and from the city and beyond.
Titled A School of Schools, the 4th Istanbul Design Biennial stretched both the space and time of the traditional design event, manifesting as a flexible year-long program within which to respond to global acceleration, generating alternative methodologies, outputs and forms of design and education. A School of Schools manifested as a set of dynamic learning formats encouraging creative production, sustainable collaboration, and social connection. Exploring six themes, the learning environment was a context of empowerment, reflection, sharing and engagement, providing reflexive responses to specific situations.
At Pera Museum, the Scales School investigated the fluidity of taxonomies, quantifications, and institutionalized norms, standards and values to highlight biases and assumptions in our social, economic and intellectual agreements.
Presented as part of this biennial aims to reflect on the methodologies and ways of implementation of cohabitation in society and how this trickles down into our private lives.
Pera Film tackles the creative relationship Bauhaus had with different disciplines while focusing on the generative works of artists and architects.
1638, the year Louis XIV was born –his second name, Dieudonné, alluding to his God-given status– saw the diffusion of a cult of maternity encouraged by the very devout Anne of Austria, in thanks for the miracle by which she had given birth to an heir to the French throne. Simon François de Tours (1606-1671) painted the Queen in the guise of the Virgin Mary, and the young Louis XIV as the infant Jesus, in the allegorical portrait now in the Bishop’s Palace at Sens.
A series of small and rather similar nudes Bedri Rahmi Eyüboğlu and Eren Eyüboğlu produced in the early 1930s almost resemble a ‘visual conversation’ that focus on a pictorial search. It is also possible to find the visual reflections of this earlier search in the synthesis Bedri Rahmi Eyüboğlu reached with his stylistic abstractions in the 1950s.
