Did you know that Istanbul has a historical heritage involving many different periods? Have you ever visited Hagia Sophia, one of the most prominent examples from the Byzantine period? In a guided online 3D tour, we explore the exhibition “What Byzantinism Is This in Istanbul!” and its collection of modern renditions of Byzantine history on various artistic media, and examine the historical locations that have survived from these ancient times. In the workshop, we create our designs with painting and collage, taking inspiration from the prevalent motifs of Byzantine art, and the domes of Hagia Sophia, a key architectural component of the monumental structure. The workshop helps improve cognitive, sensory and psychomotor skills.
Drawing tools (pastels, markers, etc.)

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.
In a bid to review the International System of Units (SI), the International Bureau of Weights and Measures gathered at the 26th General Conference on Weights and Measures on November 16, 2018. Sixty member states have voted for changing four out of seven basic units of measurement. The kilogram is among the modified. Before describing the key points, let us have a closer look into the kilogram and its history.
