Creating Random Words

School Groups
Middle School

How do you think you would feel about reading words randomly brought together? Dadaists had the goal of subverting traditional values and creating a brand-new approach to art. In this word-play workshop, we first choose an object from our backpack, and then we use the first letter of the object’s name to create a new word. We’lldivide into groups and quickly say the very first word that comes to mind. The last person in the group says their word out loud and will make a special noise to alert others that the game is finished. Through this workshop, we learn about Dadaist word games, improve our Turkish language skills and concentration, and learn how to create new words and keep rhythm.

Artist Nicola Lorini in Conversation

Artist Nicola Lorini in Conversation

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.

The adventure of the Big ‘K’

The adventure of the Big ‘K’

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.
