Pera Film in collaboration with the Friedrich-Ebert Foundation and the Goethe-Institut Istanbul is screening the documentary In The Dark Times. The documentary features Syrian artists struggling to build up a new cultural identity in exile. The film explores these artists' impressive productions in film, music, dance and theatre in Istanbul and Amman as a rising independent Syrian vision in search of freedom and recognition. The documentary utilizes Bertolt Brecht's writings as a metaphor for a strong appeal to call people for global solidarity.

Portraits and Other Fictions from the ”la Caixa” Contemporary Art Collection” examined portraiture, one of the oldest artistic genres, through a significant number of works of our times. Paintings, photographs, sculptures and videos shaped a labyrinth of gazes that invite spectators to reflect themselves in the social mirror of portraits.
