In this workshop, teachers explore the art of miniature not as a historical subject, but in a theoretical manner, setting off from contemporary artworks diverse in form and shape. We first closely examine contemporary forms of miniature via online games based on detailed images from selected artworks in the exhibition. Then, during the workshop, we forge new compositions by employing different materials such as crayon, watercolor and felt-tip pen and different techniques such as scraping, splashing and drawing, setting off from minute details in the artworks. We discuss our sentiments and observations based on the artworks we have reinterpreted and then share the story of this production. We discover different methods of communicating through art, and learn various techniques of expression through first-hand experience.

Following the opening of his studio, “El Chark Societe Photographic,” on Beyoğlu’s Postacılar Caddesi in 1857, the Levantine-descent Pascal Sébah moves to yet another studio next to the Russian Embassy in 1860 with a Frenchman named A. Laroche, who, apart from having worked in Paris previously, is also quite familiar with photographic techniques.
He had imagined the court room as a big place. It wasn’t. It was about the size of his living room, with an elevation at one end, with a dais on it. The judges and the attorneys sat there. Below it was an old wooden rail, worn out in some places. That was his place. There was another seat for his lawyer. At the back, about 20 or 30 chairs were stowed out for the non-existent crowd.
