Find Your Rhythm

Pera Kids
Ages 4-6

What is coffee? Yes, it is a hot beverage we drink from a cup. Are you ready to create your own rhythm and your own song using cups? Together with our family at our homes, we will gather coffee cups in different sizes, as well as wooden sticks or pencils. We will sit down in a circle so we can see each other better. We will examine the cups we have picked, and discuss their shapes, sizes and colors. Then, we will discover the sounds we can create using our cups and sticks/pens. Do the cups make the same sound regardless of where we hit it, or do certain parts make different sounds? Have you ever heard similar sounds? What do they sound like? After listening to these new sounds, we will make a rhythm using our cups and pencils (ting-ti-ting, clang-cla-clang…), which our family will try to imitate afterwards. Go on, show your unique rhythm!

The Horse Figure in Mersad Berber’s Works

Mersad Berber (1940-2012), is one of the greatest and the most significant representatives of Bosnian-Herzegovinian and Yugoslav art in the second half of the 20th century. His vast body of expressive and unique works triggered the local art scene’s recognition into Europe as well as the international stage.

The Chronicle of Sarajevo

Inspired by the great European masters, from Renaissance to Art Nouveau, Berber’s works exemplify the deep, opaque whites of his journeys through the fairy tale landscapes of Bosnia to the dark, macabre burrows of Srebrenica.
