While the holidaymakers invade the Hôtel de la Plage, Hulot, fanciful and offbeat, turns up in his spluttering Salmson and, through his joyful clumsiness, he keeps disturbing the quietude of the city dwellers on holiday. In the canoe, on horseback, in the beach, in the tennis court, at the hotel’s restaurant, in a cemetery or during a picnic, Hulot links gags and disasters altogether. His own presence denounces the conventional and the seriousness. His elegant upstream crossing and a gallery of unforgettable portraits compose from this summertime in the 1950s a masterpiece of poetic burlesque.

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. 

The Ottoman Way of Serving Coffee

The Ottoman Way of Serving Coffee

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.
