Rebecca Horn
Screening & Artist Talk

October 31 2013

Pera Film in collaboration with Goethe Institute is showcasing two films of well-known artist Rebecca Horn. Following the first screening Rebecca Horn will talk about her career and work.

Rebecca Horn explores Horn’s most frequently recurring themes – sexuality, human vulnerability and emotional fragility – and illustrates the richness and complexity of her work. Her early works focus on her body and senses, frequently incorporating performances and elaborate costumes. 'The Feathered Prison Fan'1978, featured in her film 'Der Eintanzer', dates from this period. Made up of an exotic circle of ostrich feathers, it creates a warm, seductive environment in which to nestle only to snatch away these reassuring sensations as the fan snaps shut. The association between sculpture and film, which continues to be a key element of her work, is fully explored throughout her works.

Is Istanbul a single city? Will Istanbul too, be one day one day divided into different sections, and numbered like the arrondisements of Paris? These are tough questions indeed!

It is understood from Evliya Çelebi’s well-known Book of Travels that the history of sea baths goes as far back as the 17th century; their acceptance and popularization take place in mid-19th century as a result of Westernization, among other things.
