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.

Pera Museum Blog is launching a new series of creepy stories in collaboration with Turkey’s Fantasy and Science Fiction Arts Association (FABISAD). The Association’s member writers are presenting newly commissioned short horror stories inspired by the artworks of Mario Prassinos as part of the Museum’s In Pursuit of an Artist: Istanbul-Paris-Istanbul exhibition. The third story is by Murat Başekim! The stories will be published online throughout the exhibition. Stay tuned!

The Search for Form

The Search for Form

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.
