In this workshop, inspired by Paula Rego's works in which she tells fairy tale stories that sometimes contain sections from her life, the participants use a dance therapy technique, "Authentic Movement", and transfer this movement onto a large piece of paper. Then, they interpret their story consisting of lines, symbols and colors before revealing it through moving and painting. The workshop invites everyone to experience bodily movement's artistic and healing aspects.

A series of small and rather similar nudes Bedri Rahmi Eyüboğlu and Eren Eyüboğlu produced in the early 1930s almost resemble a ‘visual conversation’ that focus on a pictorial search. It is also possible to find the visual reflections of this earlier search in the synthesis Bedri Rahmi Eyüboğlu reached with his stylistic abstractions in the 1950s.
Men were the first nudes in Turkish painting. The majority of these paintings were academic studies executed in oil paint; they were part of the education of artists that had finally attained the opportunity to work from the live model. The gender of the models constituted an obstacle in the way of characterizing these paintings as ‘nudes’.
