HASAN ÖZGÜR TOP
THE FALL OF A HERO

Full video ON_LINE Release

Hasan Özgür Top focuses on the propaganda materials of the Islamic State and examines the similarities between the narratives of salafi-jihadist and fascist movements. His video is made with both found and DIY footage in which he constructs a fictional yet self-reflective work, tracing routes of masculine mythologies from the classical era to today. 

The Fall of a Hero was commissioned by Protocinema, Istanbul, New York with support from SAHA Association, Istanbul for the exhibition A Few In Many Places 2020, sited at Bulbul, Berlin, and is now available in its entirety on_line.


PROTOZINE

On the occasion of A Few In Many Places, Protocinema launches ProtoZine, comprised of five commissioned texts responding to each intervention from the viewpoint of another city. Taking place across five different cities in North America, Europe and Asia, the hyper-localized group exhibition is globally interconnected by way of this zine—both digitally and in-print—as every contributor responds to the commissioned art works.
