A French man, a newcomer to lstanbul, meets a mysterious woman. Her real name, address, job in Istanbul, and origin are all uncertain. He is attracted to and has an affair with this woman with whom he strolls around lstanbul, an equally mysterious and uncanny city. Then she disappears, and as he tracks her down in a desperate effort, he is lost in an impossible labyrinth. In The Immortal, Alain Robbe-Grillet's first attempt at filmmaking, the static hotel decor of Marienbad is replaced by Istanbul with her fascinatingly and surrealistically static ambiance.

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. 

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.
