Wedding Without Bridegrooms
Wedding Without Bridegrooms //
Knowlegde Exchange Conference //
Media Art //Film-Photography //
This documtary-fiction project is the outcome of the exchange between media artists/visual artist and film professionals from Turkey / Mardin and Germany / Duisburg.
We are planing to produce 2 short films and photographies/collages in the context of our topic "wedding without bridegrooms".
Our aim is to show the massive influence conditions of systems / countries, their border politics on realization and performance of cultural heritage(s). We would like to focus on the adaption of the internet by the people as part of the oldest traditions – the wedding ceremony in this case.
Subject of our film will be a wedding with only one part of the couple physically present. Weddings without bride or groom are not uncommon in Mardin or in the diaspora of people from Turkey in Europe.
We will present our outputs (Short docu-fiction, Making of, Visual art) and the documtary of our the exchange conferences in form of an exhibition.
