Megalopolis

Curator: Ali Akay

Artist: Mounir Fatmi

A new period in which nation states declined and a political and economical supra-states structure appeared in 1990s. After the Berlin wall and USSR and through the years of European Union’s development into common currency, cities which horizontally cut the world became the new centers of it. The tension between the center and the periphery started to reshape the world through this horizontal line. Change of the cities appeared mostly in terms of gentrification and normalization processes. Through the reevaluation of old and marginalized districts, a new urban planning has been imposed. As the most significant elements of this process, architects rebuilt the buildings in the cities.

Through focusing on the architecture of these cities Mounir Fatmi considers this very process in a critical way and from the Arabic world he ironically regards to this different world in which new technologies began to dominate.
