Spanish director Julio Medem’s fifth film is a passionate, stylishly directed and frequently erotic meditation on love, loss, sex, fantasy and the nature of fiction versus reality. The story details the complex triangular relationship between Lorenzo (Ulloa), a writer given to rehashing his own life for his novels; his girlfriend Lucía (Vega), who retreats to the island location of one of his novels in order to reflect on their history together; and Elena (Nimri), a woman who, unbeknownst to him, had Lorenzo’s child after a holiday romance.

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.

Turquerie

Having penetrated the Balkans in the fourteenth century, conquered Constantinople in the fifteenth, and reached the gates of Vienna in the sixteenth, the Ottoman Empire long struck fear into European hearts.
