Istanbul in My Lens: Photographing the City

Pera Adult

  • August 20, 2023 / 14:00

We discover different faces of Istanbul with Ci Demi and Erdem Varol, whose photographs defined as "create the feeling of a pursuit, chase, coincidence, and a preoccupation with the city, looking at it in a different way, even an escape from our resistance towards it”! The participants examine the photographs with the artists and reinterpret Istanbul from various angles other than the usual tourist image. In the collective work, which take place after an interactive exhibition tour, the participants have the opportunity to reflect on the different ways of “seeing” a city.

Note: Participants are kindly requested to send Istanbul photographs they took to be used in the workshop to ogrenme@peramuzesi.org.tr or bring them with them.

Capacity: 10 people
Duration: 120 minutes
Fee per workshop: 250 TL

The event will take place at the Pera Museum (face-to-face).
