Artists’ Film International
Zeyno Pekünlü and The Institute for New Feeling

9 August – 2 October 2016

The impact of technology in our mediated lives is explored through the work of US collective The Institute of New Feeling. This is Presence (2016), offers a sophisticated array of lifestyle choices available online by borrowing from the language of corporate branding, health and beauty, and new age healing. How to properly touch a girl so you don’t creep her out? (2015) by Turkish artist Zeyno Pekünlü (b.1980), collates material posted online by pick-up life coaches to reveal their deceitful methods.

Zeyno Pekünlü is selected by Istanbul Modern and The Institute for New Feeling is selected by Ballroom Marfa.
