Sara Neidorf and Eli Lewy invite you to an evening of horror cinema with short films and experimental art films from female and queer perspectives. Eerie, macabre and comedic, the works find a haunting and at times sadistic sense of pleasure in deconstructing the filmic conventions of horror cinema. By digesting images of the normative, intact body as a whole, they appropriate and transform the tropes of the genre, revealing the everyday horror that surrounds us.

Apartment Project is pleased to host Leman S. Darıcıoğlu’s new performance titled There is an ocean between us on 28 July 2020, Tuesday. The 7-hour long performance is the result of a thread of self-directed questions.

These notions that are recently restoring their contexts are at the center of the artists’ new work, where she* reconsiders the four windows (‘screens’) of Apartment Project as a single narrative, utilizing only the facade as the project space, keeping the doors
of the venue closed for public access.

In turbulent times the Weber Class was meeting on the internet. Some of them met outside and later on at the apartment project. Here we show what we do in limbo. Come around, we look forward to it.
