From Pera to Loved Ones Far Away

We are celebrating “April 23 National Sovereignty and Children’s Day” at our online creative drama workshops through the collaboration of the Pera Museum Learning Programs and the Contemporary Drama Association. What have people been using to communicate throughout the ages? Do communication tools help us socialize, or do they create loneliness? How does the mass media affect our lives? Which has more of an impact on us–what we read, what we hear, or what we see? If you were to design your communication tool, what would it look like? At this workshop, we learn about different types of media and the tools of communication that have been used over the years through the art and visuals at the exhibition.

Audience with the Mad King

Audience with the Mad King

Celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, Pera Museum invites artist Benoît Hamet to reinterpret key pieces from its collections, casting a humourous eye over ‘historical’ events, both imagined and factual.

The Golden Horn

The Golden Horn

When regarding the paintings of Istanbul by western painters, Golden Horn has a distinctive place and value. This body of water that separates the Topkapı Palace and the Historical Peninsula, in which monumental edifices are located, from Galata, where westerners and foreign embassies dwell, is as though an interpenetrating boundary.
