The book, “Suna Kıraç Story Com­pe­ti­tion,” which is a com­pi­la­tion of award-win­ning sto­ries writ­ten by high school stu­dents, will also meet with spec­ta­tors on the dig­i­tal plat­forms of the mu­seum.

“My en­tire high school sink­ing into the sea,” the first fea­ture an­i­ma­tion film of Dash Shaw, has ref­er­ences from both teen and dev­as­ta­tion movies. Dubbed by Ja­son Schwartz­man, Lena Dunham, Reg­gie Watts, Maya Ru­dolph and John Cameron Mitchell, the film will meet spec­ta­tors free of charge at 8 p.m. to­day and 3:00 p.m. to­mor­row.


Pera Mu­seum brings to­gether Suna Kıraç Story Com­pe­ti­tion and read­ers on its web­site. The com­pe­ti­tion, which has been or­ga­nized by the Suna and İnan Kıraç Foun­da­tion and Koç School since 2008, aims to in­tro­duce new writ­ers to Turk­ish lit­er­a­ture.

Named af­ter Suna Kıraç, one of the founders of Pera Mu­seum and Koç School, the com­pe­ti­tion en­cour­ages high school stu­dents to think cre­atively, fic­tion­al­ize and ex­press them­selves with spe­cific themes that can be in­ter­preted ab­stractly and per­cep­ti­bly.

Stu­dents were al­lowed to write sto­ries about sub­jects such as borders, sleep, voice, street, mask, jour­ney and alien­ation, while the com­pe­ti­tion’s main theme was “house.”
