Pera+ will hold two different workshops between June 3 and July 22, 2016 as part of the exhibitions "In Pursuit of an Artist: İstanbul-Paris-İstanbul" and “Jameel Prize 4”.
In the philosophy workshop “Reality, Imagination, or Memory?” participants will draw inspiration from Mario Prassinos’ portraits of his grandfather Pretextat Lecomte and express ideas on the concept of recollection. In addition, they will write short stories on “Istanbul” through their own eyes, revealing their memories and fantasies about their own town.
In “The Memory of Measures - Measuring your Memories” workshop organized as part of the Jameel Prize 4, participants will establish a connection between the Anatolian Weights and Measures Collection and Cevdet Erek’s Cetvel (Ruler), have a discussion on the history of measurement, and create their own works.
