Midnight Horror Stories: Pollens, Photosynthesis & Rock ‘N’ Roll

Pera Museum Blog is launching a new series of creepy stories in collaboration with Turkey’s Fantasy and Science Fiction Arts Association (FABISAD).

The third story is by Murat Başekim! The stories will be published online throughout the exhibition. Stay tuned!
