Library of Babel 1 – “Ziggurat Tamer”

The reference of the “Library of Babel” evokes a couple of associations. The famous short story of Jorge Luis Borges’ (1941) describes the architecture of a universe-size Library. The discussion following the text scrolled around the infinity of knowledge regarding endless possibilities of combining knowledge and creating new relations. Several artists have worked on this motive, while Borges himself named a collection of fantastic narrations his “Library of Babel” (1974).

Two years long the İstanbulians were protesting for the Emek
Cinema, a hundred years old Movie theatre.

The Emek had been the location of countless Movi Premieres on Yeşilçam Sokak, the Turkish Broadway.Sometimes the İstanbul Film Festival would revive thge usage of Yeni Rüya Cinema as well.

The Ottoman Slap

Conservative intellectuals in Turkey published a condemn on the governments policy against the protesters in Turkey. They formed the Labor and Justice Platform. A quotation of their statement:

“We did not forget, how the media was mixing up the whole country with false reports on muslims in Turkey. Today the conservative and the centre mdia are doing the same to others. Parts of the population are terrorized for the sake of the others. What did change then from yesterday until today?”
