With a minimal, stage-like set incorporating only chalk outlines of streets and houses on the floor, Dogville is set in the small, fictional town of Dogville. The film tells the story of Grace Mulligan, a fugitive on the run who must gain the trust of the townspeople to be able to stay. What starts off as Grace’s voluntary participation in the community gives way to an increasingly abusive dynamic. Her presence catalyses dark impulses within the town’s citizens and raises complex issues of morality, accountability, power and human relationships.

The Search for Form

The Search for Form

A series of small and rather similar nudes Bedri Rahmi Eyüboğlu and Eren Eyüboğlu produced in the early 1930s almost resemble a ‘visual conversation’ that focus on a pictorial search. It is also possible to find the visual reflections of this earlier search in the synthesis Bedri Rahmi Eyüboğlu reached with his stylistic abstractions in the 1950s.
