Joint Project Explores the Tale of Two Cities

Siemens Sanat’s first joint project with Germany’s Bayerische Staatskanzlei, Cityscale, is inviting viewers to think critically about the urban texture of Munich and Istanbul through the works of arts on display.

Cityscale is an effort to keep the relations and cultural exchange established as early as the 1990s between the contemporary artists of both cities alive. The event, which is a first of its kind, is the result of a three-year-long collaboration between the artists.

The artworks on display are of various genres ranging from installations in public places to video work. The event will also stage exhibition presentations and panels. The contents of the event on the whole aim at creating space for critical thinking about the essence of the two cities by making use of the particular visual details of them both.

Cityscale runs through to Nov. 13, and the gallery is open every day from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Siemens Sanat is located on Meclis-i Mebusan Street No.45 in the Fındıklı neighborhood of Beyoğlu district.
