MUBI Garage

Posted in Exhibitions by barisazman on June 4, 2010

MUBI, formerly known as The Auteurs, has a section of the site with an emphasis on ‘encouraging independent control of the means of production, improving upon economies of scale and seeking alternative tactics and routes for distribution’. There is a Screening Room (focusing on ‘finding niche works of cinema that will otherwise struggle to receive distribution, promotion or exposure), The Production Notebook (a program of video interviews, podcasts, articles and seminars on filmmaking) and Groups. EFENDI and IT HASN’T HAPPENED YET have been selected for the Screening Room.

You can watch the video in a larger size on Robert’s Vimeo site.

More on the workshop ID CIRCLES that I did, in an earlier post.


WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE workshop and exposition

Posted in Exhibitions, News, Workshop by barisazman on March 27, 2009


At the start of 2009 I was approached by Karlijn Koenen (project designer) to be one of three artists (alongside Anouk Bax and Tijs Rooijakkers) give a workshop  to a group of 12 year old children. We had seven weeks (one day a week) to make a short film together. The name of the project was ID CIRKELS (ID CIRCLES) and was organised together with The Krabbedans (platform for professional artists, located in Eindhoven, The Netherlands) and Advicepoint Discrimination (Adviespunt discriminatie) and The Safetyhouse (het Veiligheidshuis). The main theme was to introduce the children to the creative arts and have them reflect on issues such as self-identity and prejudices.
