To Sir, with Love, a British film drama, released in 1967, was especially noted for Sidney Poitier’s powerful performance. Poitier played Mark Thackeray, a charismatic school teacher in London at the height of the youthful “mod” movement of the 1960s. He is assigned to a high school where discipline has completely broken down and the delinquents rule. With his innovative teaching methods, Thackeray earns the respect and admiration of his students. With its sentimental story and Poitier’s portrayal of the principled Thackeray, the film was one of the highest-grossing movies of 1967.

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.
