Our inspiration is the project by Lamia Joreige, in which the artist combines materials from the archives with elements of fiction to study the relationship between personal and collective memory, merging real history gathered from the archives with an imaginary record. In this workshop, we imagine that we are historians or an artist like Joreige, exploring the archives, and bring together the photographs we find at the archives of the Istanbul Research Institute and the Suna and İnan Kıraç Foundation Pera Museum Collections with our own drawings and texts, creating our own imaginary heroes who will challenge the epic historical narratives, as we present our own version of history using the technique of collage.

Pera Museum Blog is launching a new series of creepy stories in collaboration with Turkey’s Fantasy and Science Fiction Arts Association (FABISAD).

I remembered a game as I was waiting in the passenger lounge for the ferry to arrive just a few minutes ago. A game we used to play at home when I was young, in my country that is very far away from here, a relic from the distant past; I don’t even remember how we used to play it. The kind of game that makes me feel a thousand times lonelier than I already am among the crowd waiting to get on the ferry.
