UPCOMING EXHIBITION AT PERA MUSEUM: PƎRⱯ REVERSE 

Drawing upon two paintings within the Orientalist Painting Collection of Suna and İnan Kıraç Foundation, they explore global capitalist relations and localized cultural practices in art. The exhibition also delves into the role of architecture in both establishing and revealing the ways in which institutions mediate and operate in relation to their urban environments in a place and time.

PƎRⱯ Reverse consists of three parts, entitled “Globals”, “Steps”, and “Speculations”. In “Globals”, adaptations of light signs, pools, a Guzmania plant, and the smell of detergent mimic and expose the global city as a ruin, while the low-hanging chandelier borrowed from the Pera Museum’s Art Deco café emphasizes the institution’s glamorous fragility. “Steps” comprise the trauma that comes with the reality of representation, which fails to enact the world, or in this case, the complex and fragmented urban topography of the Pera area, full of different stairs and ramps.

They make seem absurd the universalist dream of form and norm promoted by Bauhaus modernism in particular and a Westernized modernity in general, with its linear concepts of progress, the nation-state, and the rigid politics of physical and metaphysical borders. “Speculations” comment on the increasingly abstract and transnational processes of global economic, political, and aesthetic speculation and valuation that perform violence differently –through ongoing operations of unequal exchange. By exploring the local non-profit art spaces and engaging cultural workers and visitors in a public program, the exhibition speculates on alternative values.

LEONIE LINK - POROUS BORDERS BORDÜRE 

PƎRⱯ Reverse propose themselves as an institution, that is, in a process of self-instituting a set of shared practices, to explore the role of (cultural) institutions in different places in a world that is both increasingly connected and fractured. They bring together a shifting group of artists, architects, and researchers from Istanbul, Ankara, Izmir, Tehran, Hong Kong, Osaka, Berlin, Bremen, Weimar, and other German cities.
