Benim Çocuğum takes us in to five different households in Turkey. We listen to lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans kids stories from their parents point of view. All the stories have denial, trauma, helplessness, fear, shame, acceptance and rebirth themes in common. While a mother worries that her kid is going to be hurt, the other one remembers the first bra she bought for her trans daughter. A grandmother asks “Is this from God?” and she is ready to accept what is from God. These parents that accepted their kids as they are in a transphobic and homophobic society, redefine being an activist while sharing their experiences. The documentary that takes its power from the parents love is a simple and sincere expression of the most powerful resistance against homophobia and transphobia.
Pera Museum presented a talk on Nicola Lorini’s video installation For All the Time, for All the Sad Stones, bringing together the artists Nicola Lorini, Gülşah Mursaloğlu and Ambiguous Standards Institute to focus on concepts like measuring, calculation, standardisation, time and change.
Mersad Berber (1940-2012), is one of the greatest and the most significant representatives of Bosnian-Herzegovinian and Yugoslav art in the second half of the 20th century. His vast body of expressive and unique works triggered the local art scene’s recognition into Europe as well as the international stage.
