How would you like to get together with our family to play “what’s it like” using cups? First, we will select cups of different shapes and sizes, which we will place in the middle where everyone can see. Each turn, someone gets to be “it”. For the first turn, one player has to volunteer to become “it”, and then select one cup from the group, without showing or telling the others. The other players will then ask “what’s it like”, trying to identify the cup using the hints about its color, shape, size and utility. The player who correctly guesses the cup becomes “it” next, and the game continues. If you wish, you can select from one of the cups on display at the Coffee Break exhibit.

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.
Among the most interesting themes in the oeuvre of Prassinos are cypresses, trees, and Turkish landscapes. The cypress woods in Üsküdar he saw every time he stepped out on the terrace of their house in İstanbul or the trees in Petits Champs must have been strong images of childhood for Prassinos.
A firm believer in the idea that a collection needs to be upheld at least by four generations and comparing this continuity to a relay race, Nahit Kabakcı began creating the Huma Kabakcı Collection from the 1980s onwards. Today, the collection can be considered one of the most important and outstanding examples among the rare, consciously created, and long-lasting ones of its kind in Turkey.
