Argentine, 2015, 82’, color

In the 1970s, Tucuman province in the northwest of Argentina was site to an armed rebellion of the rural working class. The uprising was violently dismantled by the country’s military, and to avoid any similar revolt in the future, the government relocated surviving indigenous peoples to four newly built settlements. It is in these four villages–each named after a different soldier who fell in the military response–that the film Toponimia takes place. Perel’s portrait offers only glimpses of the current inhabitants, their primary presence lying in the audio, while the camera records the fragile infrastructure that remains from the rapid planning forty years before.
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.
Between 1963 and 1966 Andy Warhol worked at making film portraits of all sorts of characters linked to New York art circles. Famous people and anonymous people were filmed by Andy Warhol’s 16 mm camera, for almost four minutes, without any instructions other than ‘to get in front of the camera’.
