Süreyya the Kitman

Director: Gökçe Kaan Demirkıran
Turkey, 2018, 110’, color, Turkish with English subtitles
 

“In the winter months of 2011, the roads of Süreyya Soner, or so called Süreyya the Kitman and Gökçe Kaan Demirkıran intersect at the İnönü Stadium , and this coincidence turns into a friendship with time. This friendship takes Gökçe into a journey of Süreyya’s life story. Because Süreyya is a living memory of Turkish football history and has been working as a kitman for Beşiktaş football team for many years. Football and Istanbul are changing very fast but Sureyya is not changing at all. He is as famous as a footballer and a football character known by different generations. He is a labourer of football. A documentary director and a fan of Besiktas, Gökçe goes to Süreyya with a proposal ...’ Let’s make a documentary film about your life story. And adds, all your life together with Besiktaş’ ... The documentary Süreyya the Kitman traces the history of Beşiktaş and the city of Istanbul within the biography of the kitman Süreyya.”

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.
