Director: Dennis O’rourke
1988, 72', color
English with Turkish subtitles

Using an observational style without commentary, the film follows tourists as they visit the Sepik River region in New Guinea. The film shows the tourists’ reactions in interviews and observes their behaviour as they photograph the indigenous people and purchase souvenirs. The Papua New Guineans speak to camera about their point of view of tourism. They comment that tourism provides income and introduces western ideas.

Good News from the Skies

Good News from the Skies

Inspired by the exhibition And Now the Good News, which focusing on the relationship between mass media and art, we prepared horoscope readings based on the chapters of the exhibition. Using the popular astrological language inspired by the effects of the movements of celestial bodies on people, these readings with references to the works in the exhibition make fictional future predictions inspired by the horoscope columns that we read in the newspapers with the desire to receive good news about our day.

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.
