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.
French artist Félix Ziem is one of the most original landscape painters of the 19thcentury. The exhibition Wanderer on the Sea of Light presents Ziem as an artist who left his mark on 19th century painting and who is mostly known for his paintings of Istanbul and Venice, where the city and the sea are intertwined.
The exhibition Look at Me! Portraits and Other Fictions from the ”la Caixa” Contemporary Art Collection examines portraiture, one of the oldest artistic genres, through a significant number of works of our times. Through the exhibition we will be sharing about the artists and sections in Look At Me!. This time we are sharing about Janine Antoni , exhibited under the section “The Conventions of Identitiy”!
