Artists’ Film International @ Whitechapel Gallery, Aug 9 – Oct 2

, 8 August 2016

The Institute for New Feeling and Zeyno Pekünlü are screening two films at London’s Whitechapel Gallery as part of the Artists’ Film International programme, running August 9 to October 2.

The screenings happen from 11am to 6pm  in the Whitechapel’s Zilkha Auditorium, Tuesday to Sunday, and will feature the aforementioned US-based collective’s This is Presence and the Istanbul artist’s How to properly touch a girl so you don’t creep her out?.

The former video explores what the press release calls the “impact of technology in our mediated lives”, offering “a sophisticated array of lifestyle choices available online by borrowing from the language of corporate branding, health and beauty, and new age healing”. The latter is a collection of material posted online by pick-up ‘artists’ and coaches  “revealing their deceitful methods”.

See the Whitechapel Gallery website for more details.**
