Chris Marker's renowned masterpiece Sans Soleil invites the audience to explore different parts of the world through stories told in the form of letters. Viewers witness the details of other cultures' history and daily life through these segments narrated from a narrator's perspective. The production primarily focuses on the concepts of time and memory by creating a mosaic with footage shot in various countries like Japan, Guinea-Bissau, Iceland, and France. It questions how visual images and memories intertwine and how the boundaries between the past and the present become blurred.

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.
