Me and Nuri Bala, is a film on Esmeray – a transvestite feminist activist who shatters many categories on womanhood and manhood in Turkey. The film is a personal quest to understand her experience, what defines a certain gender- a body and a place one belongs to. From the streets of Istanbul to the Eastern villages of Kars, the film takes us back and forth between the longing for belonging and the realties that shape our identities.

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.
