Don’t Shoot The Messenger documents Occupy Amsterdam. The film keeps a track of occupation participants Geert, Rick, Elke and Willem, before and after the occupation, bringing out their different thoughts and experiences as well as their shared aim of “action”. Occupy Amsterdam, a protest without a leader and a programme started with the camp established in Beursplein on October 15th 2011 and lasted for two months. The camp was cleaned and all the traces were erased before Christmas. But some traces of Occupation will always be alive and remembered.
Coffee was served with much splendor at the harems of the Ottoman palace and mansions. First, sweets (usually jam) was served on silverware, followed by coffee serving. The coffee jug would be placed in a sitil (brazier), which had three chains on its sides for carrying, had cinders in the middle, and was made of tombac, silver or brass. The sitil had a satin or silk cover embroidered with silver thread, tinsel, sequin or even pearls and diamonds.
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.
