I Have the Power!
Hors Pistes

October 2 - October 12, 2013

For the sixth edition at Pera Museum, Pera Film welcomes a selection from Centre Pompidou’s Hors Pistes under the title “I Have the Power”. The program includes six artists: Barry Doupe, Redmond Enswistle, Luke Fowler, Matias Meyer, Amanda Trager, Erik Moskowitz, Eleonore Weber. The selected film and video works of these artists present an underlying theme of the social and the historical. Every artist in his or her own manner expresses and explores these main themes either allegorically, figuratively, and/or realistically. The tools they utilize bring them towards a social concern, from the one-person experience to a more societal perspective, whether it is the subject they are dealing with or whether it is the artist’s meticulous choice to film –the program underlines the power of the image, the artist in power as the storyteller as well as the chosen subject the artist wishes to tackle. Thus “I Have the Power” encapsulates moments of social visions and realities.

Screenings can be seen with a discounted museum ticket (5 TL). No reservations taken.

He didn’t expect this from me. And I hadn’t expected that we would decide to get married that day, at that moment. Everything happened all of a sudden, but exactly like it was supposed to happen in our day. We thought of the idea of marriage simultaneously, we smiled simultaneously, blinking and opening our eyes in unison. 

The First Nudes

The First Nudes

Men were the first nudes in Turkish painting. The majority of these paintings were academic studies executed in oil paint; they were part of the education of artists that had finally attained the opportunity to work from the live model. The gender of the models constituted an obstacle in the way of characterizing these paintings as ‘nudes’.
