"What Byzantinism Is This in Istanbul!" Online Exhibition Tour for Teachers

Teachers

In a guided online 3D tour, we explore the exhibition “What Byzantinism Is This in Istanbul!” and its collection of modern renditions of Byzantine history on various artistic media. Then, we take a look at the common themes in literature, music, visual arts, comics, film and fashion that relate to Byzantine history in various ways, and try to make sense of the apparent differences based on field, region and historical period.

Teachers will discover ways of integrating Pera Museum exhibitions’ curricula-compatible Teacher Guidebooks into their classroom activities and accompanying their students in the exhibitions, as well as a wide range of activities for different age groups.

Marcel Duchamp’s Bicycle Wheel

Marcel Duchamp’s Bicycle Wheel

In 1998 Ben Jakober and Yannick Vu collaborated on an obvious remake of Marcel Duchamp’s Roue de Bicyclette, his first “readymade” object. Duchamp combined a bicycle wheel, a fork and a stool to create a machine which served no purpose, subverting accepted norms of art.

The man is depicted in three-quarters view, turning straight to the viewers with a penetrating glance. The background is grey, while the clothes, the hair, and cap are black.
