New urban landscapes at Akbank Art Center

“New Urban Landscapes Video Program: Cologne-İstanbul,” a project initiated between the sister cities of Cologne and İstanbul, consists of new videos by Becker and Germen, whose works are in international museum collections.

The videos look at “transformation processes in fields such as architecture and urban planning [in both cities] to discover original new visualizations of the aesthetic phenomena created by metropolitan formations,” according to a press release announcing the series.

The project was initially presented last year in Cologne at the Labor Ebertplatz as part of the 2014 Photoszene-Festival Koln and the plan14 Architecture Biennale.
