When her father sets her dog Hagen free on the streets of Budapest, thirteen-year-old Lili becomes devastated. She runs away from home to search for him while Hagen’s path crosses dark people on dark streets full of violence, enmity, assault and danger. In this city of overcrowded shelters and illegal dog fights, Hagen becomes a symbol of revolution and this revolution becomes a symbol of Lili’s rebellion. Awarded with Un certain regard prize in Cannes Film Festival, Kornél Mundruczó’s White God is empowered by pure love in spite of all its harshness and wilderness.

Pera Museum, in collaboration with Istanbul Foundation for Culture and Arts (İKSV), is one of the main venues for this year’s 15th Istanbul Biennial from 16 September to 12 November 2017. Through the biennial, we will be sharing detailed information about the artists and the artworks.

Giacometti: Early Works

Giacometti: Early Works

Organized in collaboration with the Giacometti Foundation, Paris, the exhibition explores Giacometti’s prolific life, most of which the artist led in his studio in Montparnasse, through the works of his early period as well his late work, including one unfinished piece. Devoted to Giacometti’s early works, the first part of the exhibition demonstrates the influence of Giovanni Giacometti, the father of the artist and a Swiss Post-Impressionist painter himself, on Giacometti’s output during these years and his role in his son’s development.
