Do you know how coffee is grown before it is turned into a beverage and enters our homes? Do you have any guesses? Do you think it is a fruit or a vegetable, or some kind of snack? Coffee is a fruit, and like other fruits, it grows on trees! The fruit of the coffee tree is actually red at first, and it turns into the familiar brown seed after it is roasted.
Coffee was first discovered by Ethiopians who live in Africa, who realized that they could brew it into a delightful beverage. They called this plant the Magic Fruit. If you had a magic fruit, what would it look like? Can you draw it? Use color pens to draw a picture of your magic fruit on paper, and share with everyone what its magical properties would be! Don’t forget to use the #PeraLearning hashtag on social media…

This program is presented especially for the 100th anniversary of the April 23 National Sovereignty and Children’s Day, inspired by Pera Museum's digital exhibitions.
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’.
Nam June Paik was video art’s pioneer (1932 –2006). It is interesting that while Warhol and Nameth were experimenting with psychedelic happenings that combined rock, film and performance, the video art pioneers Nam June Paik, Stephen Beck, Eric Siegel and Steina Vasulka were researching in a similar direction.
