Swedish with Turkish subtitles

With this spare chamber piece, set in an empty theater, Ingmar Bergman returned to his perennial theme of the permeability of life and art. Lingering after a rehearsal for August Strindberg’s A Dream Play, eminent director Henrik enters into a frank and flirtatious conversation with his up-and-coming star, Anna leading him to recall his affair with Anna’s late mother, the self-destructive actress Rakel. The sharply written and impeccably performed After the Rehearsal, pares away all artifice to examine both the allure and the cost of a life in the theater.

Marcel Duchamp’s Bicycle Wheel

In 1998 Ben Jakober and Yannick Vu collaborated on an obvious remake of Marcel Duchamp’s Roue de Bicyclette, his first “readymade” object. Duchamp combined a bicycle wheel, a fork and a stool to create a machine which served no purpose, subverting accepted norms of art.
