A group of astronauts land on the dark side of a distant planet to found a new civilization. But as the Elder of the community die, the new society progressively deteriorates. The settlers, whose number is rapidly growing, turn little by little into a tribe torn by internal fights. When the last survivor, a reporter who records images of daily life, is hailed as a messiah by the second generation, he is horrified by the crimes carried out in his name. Meanwhile, during an exploratory expedition to the other side of the sea, the warriors discover the existence of a powerful species of bird-shaped monsters… On the Silver Globe is perhaps the grandest expression of Żuławski’s visionary artistry.

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.

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.
