Director: Frederick Wiseman
USA, 2017, 197’, color, English with Turkish subtitles
 

In his much lauded Ex Libris: New York Public, which premiered at Venice, the legendary documentarian Frederick Wiseman, who devoted his career to making documentaries that shine a light on how institutions work, takes a closer look at one of the largest public libraries in the world. Wiseman, who carved out a niche for himself with his idiosyncratic view, once again creates a sense of “witnessing” with his trademark non-interventionist style. Ex Libris: New York Public Library is a very special documentary about cultural history and reality that are under treat nowadays.

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.
