Stage of Plastic Dreams

March 12 - May 28, 2021

Pera Museum presented virtual event series “Plastik Düşler Sahnesi” (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 “Plastik Düşler Sahnesi” event series brought musicians and visual artists together in a virtual event space open to participants. The series aimed to offer an experience similar to that of a physical venue with its spatial sound design, interactive objects and interaction opportunities between participants in an alternative format to online events, which have become increasingly popular due to the pandemic, while supporting musicians and visual artists who have been greatly affected by the pandemic.

It can be seen how Goya gradually and constantly investigated all the technical possibilities of creative engraving from etching to lithography.

Midnight Horror Stories: The Last Ferry
Galip Dursun

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.

Fluid Rego

Fluid Rego

While Paula Rego belatedly was recognised as one of the leading feminist pioneers of her age, little has been written about her exploration of fluid sexuality. Indeed the current of sado-masochism in her drawings and paintings, has tended to encourage an understanding as a classic clash between the patriarchy and exploited women.
