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.

Moscow Conceptualists

Moscow Conceptualists

Our institutions have been stuck on linear Neo-Platonic tracks for 24 centuries. These antiquated processes of deduction have lost their authority. Just like art it has fallen off its pedestal. Legal, educational and constitutional systems rigidly subscribe to these; they are 100% text based.

Baby King

Baby King

1638, the year Louis XIV was born –his second name, Dieudonné, alluding to his God-given status– saw the diffusion of a cult of maternity encouraged by the very devout Anne of Austria, in thanks for the miracle by which she had given birth to an heir to the French throne. Simon François de Tours (1606-1671) painted the Queen in the guise of the Virgin Mary, and the young Louis XIV as the infant Jesus, in the allegorical portrait now in the Bishop’s Palace at Sens.

Girl in a Blue Dress

Girl in a Blue Dress

This life-size portrait of a girl is a fine example of the British art of portrait painting in the early 18th century. The child is shown posing on a terrace, which is enclosed at the right foreground by the plinth of a pillar; the background is mainly filled with trees and shrubs.
