One World, One Photograph

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. Photographs are for safeguarding memories. Memories are perceived differently by those who take the photos and those who look at them. Seeing the world through photographs informs a person and sets up a line of communication with the photo. A photograph forges a bond between life and people–what memory would it choose to frame? Does a text complete a photograph, or vice versa? As you look for answers to the questions that have come up with the invention of the photograph, are you ready to take a journey into the history of the printed media? We design a newspaper page at the end of this workshop. We also not only discuss the invention of the photograph, but also talk about the interaction between photography and the printed media.

Memory of Objects

Memory of Objects

In his book exploring the cultural history of souvenirs, Rolf Potts discusses how such objects assume meaning through personal stories: Objects turn into memories with the stories they hold.

Memory of the Region

Memory of the Region

Objects also bear the memory of the geography to which they relate. Ceramics, with soil as their primary material, are directly linked to the land where they are produced: forging a direct relationship with earth, ceramics bear the memory of the soil where they come from.
