The world has already been filmed. It is time to transform it is a Parallel Event at the 13th Istanbul Biennial.

The screening The world has already been filmed. It is time to transform it, which will open in conjunction with Margherita Moscardini’s solo show in the exhibition hall of Circolo Roma at the Italian Institute of Culture in Istanbul, continues the process that began in September 2011 with Anteprima, a screening of videos by six artists, both Turkish and Italian, presented as a Parallel Event of the 12th Istanbul Biennial.

The title of the event is a quote from Guy Debord that effectively sums up the demise of the passive role of the spectator while experiencing moving images such as videos or films, a role assigned to him by the ‘society of the spectacle’.

Visual artists made significant contributions to such revolutionary perspective: through their research in the fields of film and video they expanded the potentiality of the viewing process to the point of influencing aspects of society.

Elisabetta Benassi, Anna Franceschini, Pietro Mele, Marinella Senatore and Giulio Squillacciotti not only they film the world but also rebuild the production processes of our reality. Their moving images therefore become a means of sharing and a starting point from which implement potential changes.
