Benim Çocuğum takes us in to five different households in Turkey. We listen to lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans kids stories from their parents point of view. All the stories have denial, trauma, helplessness, fear, shame, acceptance and rebirth themes in common. While a mother worries that her kid is going to be hurt, the other one remembers the first bra she bought for her trans daughter. A grandmother asks “Is this from God?” and she is ready to accept what is from God. These parents that accepted their kids as they are in a transphobic and homophobic society, redefine being an activist while sharing their experiences. The documentary that takes its power from the parents love is a simple and sincere expression of the most powerful resistance against homophobia and transphobia.
He had imagined the court room as a big place. It wasn’t. It was about the size of his living room, with an elevation at one end, with a dais on it. The judges and the attorneys sat there. Below it was an old wooden rail, worn out in some places. That was his place. There was another seat for his lawyer. At the back, about 20 or 30 chairs were stowed out for the non-existent crowd.
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.
