The New Generation Queens is the story of Zanzibar's women's soccer team. On an island where religion bars women from playing soccer, the Queens’s very existence resists cultural norms and complicates assumptions about Islam and gender identity. When the girls qualify for a tournament on the mainland of Tanzania, they have the chance to leave the island for the first time and compete in front of scouts for Tanzania national team. Though forced to go home early after losing their first three games, the team returns to Zanzibar determined to share their pastime with others and to spread the message that you can be a woman, a Muslim and a soccer player.

These screenings are free of admissions. Drop in, no reservations.

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. 

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.
