Storytelling: Whispers of the City

Pera Adult

  • March 31, 2023 / 19:00

In this workshop, inspired by the multi-layered structure of the Istanbuls Today exhibition, which brings together contemporary visual narratives from different Istanbuls, the participants set out from photographs selected from the exhibition and construct the story of a city through various creative writing techniques. Participants build a story through three visuals/objects that inspire the introduction-body-conclusion components. Then, they become a part of this collective narrative by collaborating on the storylines together.

The Horse Figure in Mersad Berber’s Works

The Horse Figure in Mersad Berber’s Works

Mersad Berber (1940-2012), is one of the greatest and the most significant representatives of Bosnian-Herzegovinian and Yugoslav art in the second half of the 20th century. His vast body of expressive and unique works triggered the local art scene’s recognition into Europe as well as the international stage.

The Chronicle of Sarajevo

The Chronicle of Sarajevo

Inspired by the great European masters, from Renaissance to Art Nouveau, Berber’s works exemplify the deep, opaque whites of his journeys through the fairy tale landscapes of Bosnia to the dark, macabre burrows of Srebrenica.
