Memorial for the Lost Pages

February 21 - March 7, 2022

Pera Film presents Memorial for the Lost Pages, an online film program parallel to the exhibition, Notes for Tomorrow opened in November at Pera Museum.

In the Memorial for the Lost Pages, there are 9 different experimental films that examine the ways of making sense of the world in times of uncertainty, and draw a path from solution to knot, from documentation to creativity by taking the collective memory as a starting point.

The program that will take place between 21 February - 7 March presents; Memory Surfaces and Mental Prayers, a collection of works by Bill Viola that address the desire to transcend the perceptual and cognitive structures of experience; Ephraim Asili's five-film series Diaspora Suite, which traces a common geographical and historical origin, and her short documentary. The House Is Black, the only film by Iranian poet Forough Farrokhzad, and one of the first of its genre, will also be featured with its restored copy for the first time in Turkey.

The program will be streamed at film.peramuzesi.org.tr between February 21 and March 7, and only be accessible to online audiences in Turkey. As per legal regulations, all our screenings are restricted to persons over 18 years of age, unless stated otherwise.

Notes for Tomorrow

Notes for Tomorrow features artworks from around the world, brought together to reflect on a new global reality ushered in by the Covid-19 pandemic. With the ever-present backdrop of the crisis, Independent Curators International (ICI) turned to 30 curators from 25 countries to question and reassess values and relevance in contemporary culture, and to share an artwork they believe is vital to be seen today.

Paris Without End (1959-1965)

Paris Without End (1959-1965)

In the 60s, Alberto Giacometti paid homage to Paris, the city where he lived, by drawing its streets, cafés, and more private places like his studio and the apartment of his wife, Annette. These drawings would make up his last book, Paris sans fin (Paris Without End).

Midnight Stories: The Soul
Aşkın Güngör

The wind blows, rubbing against my legs made of layers of metal and wires, swaying the leaves of grass that have shot up from the cracks in the tarmac, and going off to the windows that look like the eyes of dead children in the wrecked buildings that seem to be everywhere as far as the eye can see.
