In her smart, brash, punkishly DIY sophomore feature, director Jenna Bass uses the “body swap” cinematic formula to explore complicated issues of race and gender in the supposed “rainbow nation” of post-apartheid South Africa. Shot entirely on an iPhone, it’s the story of four friends on a camping trip who awake to discover they’ve all scrambled identities—a situation that leads to both personal chaos and political insight.

Giorgio de Chirico

Giorgio de Chirico

Giorgio de Chirico was born on July 10, 1888, in Volos, Greece, to an Italian family. His mother, Gemma Cervetto, was from a family of Genoa origin, but most likely she was born in Izmir. His father, Evaristo, was born on June 21, 1841 in the Büyükdere district of Istanbul.

Marcel Duchamp’s Bicycle Wheel

Marcel Duchamp’s Bicycle Wheel

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.
