A Question of Taste deals with kitsch, a concept whose meaning has shifted since the 19th century, and the intimate relationship this concept has established with today's visual culture as well as its critical role in shaping taste. The film programtitled Digital Feelings, curates 5 examples of film and video art representations of the concept of taste as an indicator for social class, the values attributed to the Eastern and Western understanding of aesthetic, the rise of mass culture against high art, and the visual language shaped during the transition from object culture to digital culture.
Running between May 9 – 29, the program includes Suzie Silver's adaptation film Freebird, which draws upon an amazing array of found footage and special effects to bend genders and genres with spectacular visual delight; Fresh Kill, which makes sense of the act of disposing of goods and people by exploring connections among people on the edges of corporate capitalism and off-center in a white, bourgeois, heterosexual world; Julia Meltzer and Amanda Ramos’ short film (chantlandia), which uses the public bathroom stall as format and metaphor for Internet relay chat lines (IRCs); Valentine for Perfect Strangers, which was anonymously posted online in 2006 and last but not least, Wonders Wander, a location based mobi-web-serial with four fictional episodes set in Madrid.
The program will be streamed at film.peramuzesi.org.tr between May 9 – 29, and only be accessible to online audiences in Turkey. As per legal regulations, all our screenings are restricted to persons over 18 years of age, unless stated otherwise.
