Photojournalist Harrison Lloyd, travels to the war-torn Yugoslavia for a last assignment and is announced ‘probably-dead’ after a building collapses, causing his family nothing but devastation. His wife Sarah though, also being a journalist, is determined not to accept the news. She decides to go to Yugoslavia, looking after him. Vukovar, where Harrison is said to have died, is unfortunately right in the middle of the war and chaos. Meanwhile, Harrison’s son Cesar looks after his father’s prized greenhouse, trying to keep the flowers and his own hopes alive. Harrison’s Flowers was adapted from Isabel Ellsen’s novel with a cast of celebrities.
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.
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.
