Once upon a time: fairy Carabosse cuts the navel cord of a new born baby called Anastasia. “Too late,” she says, “A needle will sting her hand at sixteen and she will die.” The other fairies start to cry: Nobody deserves to sleep for a hundred years... A hundred years! Sleeping! Even though the fairies can’t inhibit the curse they find a way for the girl to bear those hundred years: bestow onto her the ability to travel far lands in her dreams.

With Her Beloved Diego, Mexico, Nickolas and the Masterpieces She Painted From Her Bed: Frida Kahlo

Frida Kahlo was born on July 6, 1907 in Coyoacán, Mexico. Exactly 47 years from now, before she died in the same city and her beloved Mexico, many things would happen; she’d meet Diego Rivera, become a world-renowned artist, and allow many of her fans to dress like her on Halloween.

Marcel Duchamp’s Bicycle Wheel

In 1998 Ben Jakober and Yannick Vu collaborated on an obvious remake of Marcel Duchamp’s Roue de Bicyclette, his first “readymade” object. Duchamp combined a bicycle wheel, a fork and a stool to create a machine which served no purpose, subverting accepted norms of art.

Inspired by its Anatolian Weights and Measures Collection, Pera Museum presents a contemporary video installation titled For All the Time, for All the Sad Stones at the gallery that hosts the Collection. The installation by the artist Nicola Lorini takes its starting point from recent events, in particular the calculation of the hypothetical mass of the Internet and the weight lost by the model of the kilogram and its consequent redefinition, and traces a non-linear voyage through the Collection.
