Exploring Coffee Cup Motifs

School Groups

Online

Did you ever paint using plants? Which vegetables and fruits would you use for primary colors? In this workshop we study cups and other objects that were painted with natural dyes and make guesses about how these colors were obtained. After a guided tour of the “Coffee Break” exhibition from the Suna and İnan Kıraç Foundation Kütahya Tiles and Ceramics Collection, we create compositions by printing the motifs we came across in the exhibition.

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.
