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.

Good News from the Skies

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.
