Video: Çiçek Kahraman
Turkey, 2015, 5', HDD, renkli, color, b&w
This video focuses on the common representation of ‘the street’ in the ‘neighbourhood comedies' -a sub-genre in Turkish Cinema. It explores how 'windows' are represented in these movies as an area of socialisation, and how ‘neighbourhood’ is defined in terms of 'public' and 'private'. The footage is gathered from movies produced in Turkey between 1960 and 1985; a period referred to as Yeşilçam. This term also entails a certain genre and a certain means of production. The footage consists of shots of people in windows, either looking at or talking to someone. The video also explores gender definitions in Yeşilçam movies by assembling footage of different representations of female characters.

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.
