March 8, 2020: A Memoir, a desktop documentary that ventures into what the "Touristic Cameras" overlooking Taksim Square leave in the dark during the Feminist Night March. We watch Istanbul through the Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality's cameras that broadcast live 24/7. A child playing with a red balloon, young people dancing in the streets, people taking souvenir photos, the Maiden's Tower, the Grand Bazaar... But do the Touristic Cameras also see the Feminist Night March? March 8, 2020: A Memoir, through screenshots, journeys through time to capture the memory of the last mass action in Istanbul before the pandemic.

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.
