Director: Frederick Wiseman
USA, 1969, 75', black & white, English with Turkish subtitles
 
A major figure in American documentary cinema, Frederick Wiseman began making his extraordinary series of films during the Direct Cinema movement of the 1960s. In 1968, he set his sights on a high school in Philadelphia and observed the daily activities of teachers, students, and others. His investigative camera infiltrates the biology, gym, and typing classes and records orientation meetings and parents' evenings. Just as always, Wiseman achieves this in a casual, non-narrative style. In High School, he reveals himself to be interested primarily in the ideological and political values that the school conveys to its students.

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.
