A trans presents two exhibitions that initiate an intercultural dialogue on visions of urban and landscape spaces. The first show by the German-Austrian architect Ekkehart Keintzel depict the transformation of identities with reference to the recent residential modes and lifestyles of the metropolis of Istanbul. Emerging on the Bosphorus during the 1930s – between Orient and Occident – was a new cityscape in the International Style that symbolized the modern Turkish republic. All around the old town, numerous immigrants erected large-scale settlements (Gecekondu) without the benefit of planning processes or authorizations – a ’self-service city.’ Urbanization took place here informally on the basis of individual and collective initiative. Today, gated communities are gradually appropriating these attractive residential areas. The newly established middle-class and elite prefer to live in artificial thematic landscapes with lakes such as the ’New Bosphorus,’ which mirror an idealized image of interchangeable megacities.

The Happy Talks foster the dialogue and discourse between the photographer / architect Ekkehart Keintzel and invited guests about urban planning in Istanbul, the presented residental areas and a general photographic approach to the city.
