Michael Winterbottom’s Welcome to Sarajevo is based on the true story of the British war-reporter Michael Nicholson. Michael’s life changes after he and the American reporter Flynn make a report on an orphanage full of kids trying to survive near the front line in Sarajevo. Henderson chooses to get involved in these kids’ lives at the expense of risking his career and breaking the law. A dangerous journey of a war-reporter evolves into a hopeful journey of a child. Being filmed on location only a few months after the siege had ended and with the usage of actual news footage, the film provokes a true sense of authenticity.
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.
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.
