Stage of Plastic Dreams

March 12 - May 21, 2021

Pera Museum presents 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 brings musicians and visual artists together in a virtual event space open to participants. The series aims 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’s better to burn out than to fade away

In 1962 Philip Corner, one of the most prominent members of the Fluxus movement, caused a great commotion in serious music circles when during a performance entitled Piano Activities he climbed up onto a grand piano and began to kick it while other members of the group attacked it with saws, hammers and all kinds of other implements.

Marcel Duchamp’s Bicycle Wheel

In 1998 Ben Jakober and Yannick Vu collaborated on an obvious remake of Marcel Duchamp’s Roue de Bicyclette, his first “readymade” object. Duchamp combined a bicycle wheel, a fork and a stool to create a machine which served no purpose, subverting accepted norms of art.
