Swedish with Turkish subtitles

Late in the evening on February 28th, 1986, Swedish Prime Minister Olof Palme and his wife walked home from seeing a film. Palme was fatally shot and killed by an unknown assassin. The murder was never solved. Maud Nycander and Kristina Lindström’s encompassing portrait of Palme began as a means to reassess the former prime minister’s legacy, separate from the drama and horror of his death. More than 26 years have passed since Palme was assassinated, but he remains a divisive figure in Swedish society. Outspoken, courageous, and an advocate for women’s rights, environmentalism, and the peace movement, Palme almost single-handedly changed global views about Sweden. Nycander and Lindström’s film portrait offers an encompassing view both of the man and of his era with never-before-seen footage released by the Palme family.

From two portraits of children…

The Suna and İnan Kıraç Foundation’s Orientalist Painting Collection includes two children’s portraits that are often featured in exhibitions on the second floor of the Pera Museum. These portraits both date back to the early 20th century, and were made four years apart. One depicts Prince Abdürrahim Efendi, son of Sultan Abdulhamid II, while the figure portrayed on the other is Nazlı, the daughter of Osman Hamdi Bey.
