Measure of Human

July 24 - August 24, 2020

Pera Film presents the online version of the Pera Museum’s Anatolian Weights and Measures Collection exhibition. In a time when our perceptions are altered and lead us to new practices that defy our standards, Measure of Human program explores the history and evolution of weights and measures – the first forms of universal standards. Suna and İnan Kıraç Foundation Anatolian Weights and Measures Collection exhibition is home to a variety of weights and measures used, evolved, measured and standardized in the Anatolia region over the course of around four millennia from 2000 BCE to today. The program’s documentary and videos shed light on the deep-rooted history of the practices of measuring and weighing. Measure of Human program is available online on the Pera Museum website until August 24.
