A young artist who works as a gallery assistant is taken to a luxury dinner with her boss, the gallery owner, after an international art fair. An art collector, a curator and an institution director join the table where she is introduced to the absurd and corrupt hierarchy of the art world. She observes the table all night and tries to take part in the conversation, but is not acknowledged. In every attempt to communicate with the important figures of the art world, she is disappointed.
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.
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.
