Pera+ held 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 drew inspiration from Mario Prassinos’ portraits of his grandfather Pretextat Lecomte and expressed ideas on the concept of recollection. In addition, they wrote 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 established a connection between the Anatolian Weights and Measures Collection and Cevdet Erek’s Cetvel (Ruler), had a discussion on the history of measurement, and created their own works.
