Şair Ziya Paşa Yokuşu, No: 13, Kuledibi, Galata, Beyoğlu
Bir Prova / A Rehearsal by Annika Eriksson
September 16 / 4pm–7pm
For A Rehearsal five actors will be introduced to an unfamiliar script written by the artist. From the moment of the performance’s opening on, the actors will have three hours to find a way of performing the play. No instructions will be given regarding the persona of the characters; they are sexless, ageless, blank; everything is up to the interpretation of the actors. The visitors will all along be able to see how the actors are trying to find coherence, how they are arguing, discussing and trying to attain a final product.
Photobody by Fyodor Pavlov-Andreevich
September 16 / 5pm–8pm September 17 / 4pm–7pm September 18 / 4pm–7pm
“… (during the performance) something resembling a product is generated. This concept is quite rarely encountered in contemporary art. Viktor Shklovsky himself discusses this in his fundamental essay “Art as Technique”: “In art, it is our experience of the process of construction that counts, not the finished product.” -Fyodor Pavlov-Andreevich
nowiswere Unpublished Issue #2
September 17 / 1pm–2.30pm
Limited capacity | RSVP required at info@galerinon.com
Nowiswere Contemporary Art Magazine (edited by Veronika Hauer and Fatoş Üstek) is a web-based publication that positions itself as an accumulation ground for socio-political, aesthetic realities of the present.  Expanding Nowiswere’s publishing practices to outside The Internet, The Unpublished Issue is an undocumented live event that enables the editors and contributors of Nowiswere to meet and engage face-to-face with each other and members of the general public.  With each issue adapting to the changing environments in which they are held, they feature material and formats of live presentation that cannot be published within the magazine or on the website itself. The Unpublished Issue is developed in conceptual proximity to Nowiswere’s editorial practice, inviting artists, writers and curators to articulate an immediate stance of their current notions of ‘the now’.
Unpublished Issue #2 features the following live contributions:
Rapid Eye Movement / The Persons by poet and writer Peter Jaeger;
Fringel / Franson, 2011 by Veronika Hauer (performance / text) and Rudolf Steckholzer (photographs);
Beyond The Secrets: Behold The Mysteries! by critic and writer Jan Verwoert;
The Museum of Non-Participation, a lecture intervention by Karen Mirza and Brad Butler that consists of narration, texts, slides and video from the museum’s collection.

What a Loop by ha za vu zu
September 18 / 3pm–4pm
What a Loop evolved from a game that ha za vu zu plays, that is filmed and fictionalized over and over again. The game begins by choosing scenes that are inspired by film clichés. Players sitting by a table re-enact these scenes by taking turns in such a way that it seems as if the scene “contaminates” each player one by one. While a player is re-enacting, the others use a 35mm handheld camera to shoot the scene. In contrast to this “insider” viewpoint, an “outsider” camera is simultaneously filming the backstage, showing the other players as a set-crew working on the props and other technicalities. Once a player’s scene is done, s/he works either as a camera operator or as a member of the stage crew for the next scene. The whole process is an interrupted loop of film clichés.
